SALTHOUSE INMATES of WEST BECKHAM UNION WORKHOUSE
This was the workhouse used by Salthouse people, and the following information has been kindly donated
to the Salthouse History site by Honor Jones.
Here — among the many others from as far afield as North Walsham over to Holt —
are the only folks born in Salthouse, who were residing in West Beckham Union House in 1851:
Hannah DIX ( head ) Unmarried 37 born Salthouse.
Thomas DIX ( son ) aged 9 born Salthouse
Lydia DIX ( daur ) aged 7 born Salthouse.
After a search through Gressenhall 1851 census, Honor was happy to find not one Salthouse-born person!
From the 1861 census for West Beckham Union Workhouse, Honor found three children from Salthouse.
she says "As these children were all orphans and their information is in sequence, I think they must have
been brothers and sister."
Alexander PARLETT Orphan aged 11 Scholar born in Salthouse.
Alvena PARLETT Orphan aged 8 Scholar born in Cley Next the Sea.
John PARLETT Orphan aged 4 Scholar born in Salthouse.
From the film for West Beckham Workhouse which Honor purchased some 15 or more years ago,
she transcribed the baptismal register and the death register. The following are folks from Salthouse
who died in the West Beckham Union Workhouse, during the period Oct 4th, 1867 to March 30th, 1933.
