It would depend on how old her son was Cathy52. If he was old enough to work, most likely he would have been separated from her. Mary

I think it would be safe to say that he probably stayed with her at that young age. Hope she didn't stay long. Mary

I've noticed a couple of posters referring to poor law records held when this place was Barnhill, would the Mitchell hold any similar information relating to it as Foresthall, my mum spent a short time in a homeless unit there as a little kid in the 70s. Her parents were very proud people and after they got back on their feet, their time in Foresthall was never spoken of sad.gif

GlasgowVisitor, Barnhill and Foresthall are one and the same, the name changed in 1945. As far as I'm aware, the Mitchell Library hold Poor Law records up until 1923 but they might be able to tell you where to find further info. Mary

I just happened to notice Barnhill posts. As a boy I lived just around the corner in Wellfield St.,Went to Wellfield Elementery School. A class mate of mines lived there. I had a very different perspective of the place. His father was Chief or head engineer and lived in a lovely big house with a garden. I think they even had a piano. I think this would be around 1942/3/4.Of course I really didn`t see the rest. I was mesmerized with the nice grounds etc. Later on while rationing was still on, this punter who worked in Barnhill used to sell my father a couple of pounds of meat(probably nicked out of the kitchens) then he`d use the money to put a bet on with my father. Win Win situation me thinks.!!

HI there

Just been reading all the info on Barnhill Poor house.

I am writing a book on Scottish Suffragettes, however some of my chapters on areas of Scotland cover women's work, health and education in the 19th century leading up to women's votes.

I would be interested to hear from anyone who may have relevant info and photos.
thanks carol_oconnor@sky.com
