Re: Greenwich School Boys
Looking at the census, Joseph the father (of Joseph H.P.) in 1891 is living with his mother Elizabeth and 2 sisters in Plymouth. 1881 he is with his mother and with his Father Joseph, a Stoker in Royal Navy, aged 30. This Joseph died Sept qtr 1881, aged 31. It could be that this is the Naval connection which qualified Joseph Henry Peter to get into Greenwich school.(His grandfather was a stoker, (more coal!!). A tough job, death cert would be interesting.
