Does anyone have any information on / knowledge of the whereabouts of the
records for Scarborough Union Workhouse ? My great great great Aunt Hannah
Robinson gave birth to an illegitimate baby (Emily) there in July 1879.
Minutes of the board of Guardians from 1837-84 are at North Yorkshire
County Records Office, Northallerton.
Correspondence with the central authorities in London from 1834-96 is at
TNA, Kew (in class MH12).
