    My grandmother, whom I never met, was a dressmaker in London in the late 1800’s. In her diary of 1889, she wrote of going to school. I have to assume it was a school that taught dressmaking. She referred to herself as a seamstress.
    Because she came upon hard times, she had to place three of her children in homes. She sent my father to the Barnardo School for Boys and he was subsequently shipped to Canada in 1910 at the age of 7, where he worked as an indentured servant on a farm in northern Ontario.
    I am researching his life and that of his family, but, for this inquiry, I am looking at the life and occupation of his mother.

      Thank you, that’s really interesting – yes there were special ‘lessons’ for seamstresses – so sad that so many families were split up then rather than being supported – the New Poor Law had a lot to answer for

    Having read this I thought it was really enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this short article together. I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worth it!
