Arthur Reeve born Colkirk 1844
Posted by: Steven Reeve (ID *****1898) Date: February 20, 2006 at 10:16:23

I am looking for info on my ggg grandfather Arthur Reeve who was born in Colkirk, Nottinghamshire circa 1844. On the 1851 census he is seven years old and is listed as a pauper/scholar presumably in the workhouse at Gressenhall.
I would love to find out who his parents were, and why he was in the workhouse, was he an orphan?. In later life he moved to Newark and then Whitby.
thank you
