  • Note:
    Appears to have been named after his mother's local minister, a Reverend Andrew REED, who later helped to found - as a charity, possibly arising from Ann Serena's initiative - Britain's first Asylum for Idiots.

    This was initially established in 1848 at Park House, Highgate. According to writer David Wright (in his book on the institution which became Royal Earlswood Asylum) Andrew Reed Plumbe, then aged 13, was admitted as a patient there in 1848. Distant Qld relative Miriam Smith has since found his death shown in Free BMD in March qtr 1881, aged 45, occurring at Reigate, Surrey.

    Though the Earlswood facility was not quite completed on its 88 acre site by 1855, this specially designed and imposing new building then began to admit patients, and operated - not as a charity after 1948 but within the NHS - up until 31 March 1997.

    The building still stands.............
