1844 – Applicant for relief under the Poor Law

The register of the Bicester Poor Law and Union shows a very sad case whereby Ann Edwards, a single woman from Oddington, then in the Workhouse, on 19 January 1844 was granted the sum of 4 shillings for two coffins for her children who died in the Workhouse.

Ann was baptised at Oddington on 10 July 1796, the daughter of Thomas and Mary Edwards. She was buried at Oddington on 30 November 1852, having died in the Workhouse from epilepsy.
