Rottingdean Parocheal School

by Steven Ellingford 26 January 2010

I was very interested to read about Warren Farm School, and the possibility that children from there were sent to Australia/Canada. I had a relative at Rottingdean Parocheal School in 1891 Henry Ellingford then he vanishes, looking up WW1 deaths I find Harry Ellingford of Brighton he died fighting in the Canadian Army. But the plot thickens as in 1901 Amy Ellingford is at Warren Farm School (not sure if she is mine I have sent for her birth certificate). Harry gives his next of kin as Amy Ellingford sister, are the 2 schools one and the same?
