1861 England Census - Ellen Lees

Ellen is 13 and staying in Alverstoke, Hampshire with her Uncle Hon. George Hastings, her parents and brother.
It is interesting as she is actually staying in "Her Majesty's Royal Naval Hospital". The site in Gosport opened as a Naval Hospital in 1754 and was the last Ministery of Defence Hospital to move to the NHS.
The site is now Grade II listed historic park and is currently in redevelopment. In the 18th century the hospital, along with the main block, contained residences for senior staff, an asylum, administration blocks, a chapel and burial ground. The grounds were surrounded by high brick walls and railings designed to stop patients from going absent without leave.
