London Poor Law - questions about parish

Classification: Query
I have a couple of questions about what to enter in the parish field.

1. If the document has no mention of a parish or poor law, but is headed Shoreditch infirmary, are we to enter Shoreditch in the poor law union/parish field?

2. I have several from 1789 where the person has not gained a legal settlement in their own right (one of them has been married 24 years and has four children) but mentions their father's parish, is this parish to be used?
