    1. [Isle-of-Thanet] Thanet House

    3. Hi there! I saw a thread about someone’s Mom that was born in Thanet House. I just ordered my Grandma’s birth info and it also lists her birth place as Thanet House Mount Pleasant Hill, Minster R. D. There is no father listed. Her Mom, Edith Florence Moore, is listed as a domestic servant of Ramsgate U. D. My Grandma, Bessie Moore, was born on May 23, 1910. It also lists Edith’s residence as Thanet House Mount Pleasant Hill, Minster. Could she have been a domestic servant at Thanet House? Any idea of what Thanet House was? Thanks so much!

ON checking with Google, I fancy that this was the local/colloquial name for the local workhouse which later became Hill House Hospital. There was a Thanet House in Margate - see: https://www.margatelocalhistory.co.uk/DocRead/Before%20seabathing%20Chap%201.html But the Mount Prospect inclusion rather suggests: http://www.workhouses.org.uk/Thanet/ HTH, Malcolm. -- Malcolm Austen <malcolm.austen@weald.org.uk>

    3. I'd doubt very much that the Minster Workhouse had anything to do with Thanet House in the article to which you refer. The article appears to be concentrating on Margate and it's mills. There was no mill built on the site of what became the Minster Workhouse that can be seen on old maps of the village On Tue, 20 Nov 2018 at 17:13, Malcolm Austen <malcolm.austen@weald.org.uk> wrote: > On Tue, 20 Nov 2018 16:49:31 -0000, Lisa Gallant <mrferli@live.com> wrote: > > > Any idea of what Thanet House was? > > ON checking with Google, I fancy that this was the local/colloquial name > for the local workhouse which later became Hill House Hospital. > > There was a Thanet House in Margate - see: > > https://www.margatelocalhistory.co.uk/DocRead/Before%20seabathing%20Chap%201.html > > But the Mount Prospect inclusion rather suggests: > http://www.workhouses.org.uk/Thanet/ > > HTH, Malcolm. > > -- > Malcolm Austen <malcolm.austen@weald.org.uk> > > _______________________________________________ > > _______________________________________________ > Email preferences: http://bit.ly/rootswebpref > Unsubscribe > https://lists.rootsweb.com/postorius/lists/isle-of-thanet@rootsweb.com > Privacy Statement: https://ancstry.me/2JWBOdY Terms and Conditions: > https://ancstry.me/2HDBym9 > Rootsweb Blog: http://rootsweb.blog > RootsWeb is funded and supported by Ancestry.com and our loyal RootsWeb > community >

I only mentioned it because it was the only 'Thanet House' I had located. Malcolm. -- Malcolm Austen <malcolm.austen@weald.org.uk>

    3. sorry - I've just replied on something via a different email based on the links in that. Tothill Street in Minster had previously been known as Tattle Street. The workhouse would have usually been referred to as the Union Workhouse or Minster Workhouse, not Thanet. There is a Thanet House in Minster but it is in Station Road and is a listed building: https://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/101224335 Perhaps a check through the 1911 census may provide better information as to names of buildings and of locations, and potentially individuals back then?

Excellent spot John. There's no photo on that site (yet) but there's only one house it could be if you look along the street with Google SreetView.

The bibliography there also refers to Isle of Thanet Union workhouse. Colloquially, I would expect, it was referred to by various names. Some of which were probably quite derogatory. -- Regards _ / ) "The blindingly obvious is / _)rad never immediately apparent" Cocaine, heroin, I never use speed, I never put the needle in Keep it Clean - The Vibrators

    3. I believe it may indeed be the location of the former workhouse. My gran spent some time in Hill House Hospital, which put the fear of god into her, because of her knowledge of the workhouse. She is sadly no longer around (died in the 80s), but was born in 1898. Also, my mum's auntie was born in the workhouse in 1921. She's still around, in her 90s.
