    • At a meeting re appointing a new master there was a question re what should be done between then and when the new Master and Matron were appointed. It was noted that "Mr C. Inman ... had written offering to act as Master in the interim.
      The matter was left in the hands of the Chairman to make the necessary arrangements."
      It is not clear whether the offer of "Mr C. Inman" (who I taken to be this Charles) was taken up.

    • See the page about Royston's Workhouse.
      My Dad said his uncle was Master of the Workhouse here - I now realise he can't have known him well, my Dad would only have been 11 when his uncle died, but it is confirmed by the report of Charles' second marriage in 1919 (item in the local paper when he remarried - Cambridge Independent Press, 19 Sep 1919)

      Clearly he was not Master in 1911, he probably became Master after the death of his first wife, registered Q3 1917, as that was in Thanet RD, where they had been living in 1911.
      Although the Workhouse system officially ended in 1930 in 1937 the casual wards were still in use, and when he died Charles was described as 'Master of the Poor Law Institution'.

    Notes 
    • In 1891 boarder with his aunt Margaret Hemmings nee Swan & her family at 18 Edward St., Newington.
      See http://www.workhouses.org.uk/ for info on workhouses (guardians minutes exist for Lewes for when John would have been there)
      Resident in St. Ann's, Lewes (St. Ann's is a part of Lewes) in 1900 when his mother died - though was present at her death and informant of it.
      He met and in 1908 married Jessie who was from Garlinge - where his father and sister lived. Did he meet her through visits to his family or was he by this time living in Garlinge himself? Twelve years younger than him, she was closer in age to his sister so may have been a friend of hers.
      In the 1911 census he was living with his wife and father-in-law in Margate - presumably working here now.

      Daddy thought this Uncle and Aunt had a son but I have found no evidence of his uncle having a child with either of his wives, nor any evidence that Margaret, who was 38 when she married, had previously had a child.
      With Jessy, there was no child by time of 1911 census, no Inman birth with mother's maiden name of Bishop on FreeBMD (mother's maiden name recorded from Q3 1911), and no Inman born on Thanet at the right time, including the small window between the 1911 census and the start of recording the mother's maiden name. (A child could have been born away from Thanet at this time, but the chance has to be small).

      A comment in my Dad's diary in 1938/9 that he cycled to Royston and visited "auntie" made me wonder if "uncle" had died by then - and a death in 1932 seems a good fit (age, place and middle initial).
