Annie Stagg of 9 Cundy St. was bound over for 12 months for wilfully abandoning her 6 children. Her husband had abandoned her 3 years before and all efforts to trace him had failed.
She and her children had from time to time been under the care of the Guardians, who were reluctant to relieve the children unless the mother also went into the workhouse.
There are many more details.
