Hi List

I've been off the list for a while as we have been renovating a house, but now I'm back!!

Does anyone know anything about family visiting rights to prisoners.

My 2 x great grandfather was sent to Pentonville Prison in 1866 for 15 years. The prison records show that he had 1 child at the time of his sentence, and another was born shortly after.

The interesting part is that his wife had another 4 children while he was in prison, one of which is my great grandfather.

I am wondering if his wife would have been allowed to spend time with him alone.

Thanks in advance.
