Subject: 'Occ:Nurse 3/3 'also 'Nurse Child'
Date: Sun, 16 May 2004 10:28:32 +1000

In 1881 census I have come across the following at one household.
Rel: Head
Occ: Nurse 3/3
and there are two children who appear to be unrelated to the Head and each with a different surname.
In each case the child is recorded as a 'nurse child'.
These children are aged 5 and 1 and their birthplaces are many miles from the census address.
I have never seen this previously and I am interested in one of the children ............. any clues?
