  • Notes 
    • ĞiğIn the 1901 census it shows that Janet (Jessie) is living in the house of Jessie May and Frank James and listed as a widow.
      Janet Sims nee White died in Craigleith Poorhouse in 1901. Craigleith Poorhouse was founded in 1868 and served the St Cuthbert's district of Edinburgh. It included an Infirmary for the care of sick paupers. In 1914 the Poorhouse was taken over as a military hospital and renamed the 2nd Scottish General Hospital, Craigleith. The "Craigleith Chronicle" served as the Hospital's wartime magazine. The Poorhouse returned to its former function in 1919, and in 1929 it became the Western General Hospital.More on the Poorhouse here http://www.workhouses.org.uk/index.html?StCuthberts/StCuthberts.shtml
      1851 Janet is found to be a lodger in the house of Daniel and Euphemia Hossack.Ğ/iğ
