i've tracked down Mary Ann Hay in the 1841 census in Acre Lane, Lambeth. She is listed alogn with another 40+ girls as being "pupils" however, they are all aged between 13-20 and i didn't think girls were educated to that age in 1841? can anyone shed any light on this? searches on the area show no schools on Acre Lane for adult women...
