  • Death: She died on 5 August 1876, at age ~6, in The Workhouse, Runcorn or Frodsham, Even the landed folks and those who were reasonably well off gave birth in the local Union Workhouse because the medical facilities were avaialable there - and to get that support at home was very expensive. So it was a good option - and they could still be snobs and have the civil registration say that Harry Augustus was born at "The Hall, Manley".
