I have found a whole family in the Govan poorhouse in the 1881 census, and the father eventually dies there in 1886. I am very curious to know what brought them to all be there.
The family was headed by George Seigerson, born about 1831 in Ireland, a bricklayer's labourer before he became a pauper, his wife Mary Crighton, b. about 1833 in Ireland, and their children, Catherine, Annie, Grace and William. After George died, Mary was able to leave the poorhouse with the girls but put William in a Catholic boys orphanage. Times must have been tough, I know, but I would like to know what the story was here, and would really appreciate someone having a look (when the weather clears!)
