Welcome to HHARP, the home of historical children’s hospital records

HHARP (The Historic Hospital Admission Registers Project) provides access to 140,213 admission records to four British children’s hospitals: three in London, the Great Ormond Street Hospital, the Evelina and the Alexandra Hip Hospital for Children, and one from Scotland, the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Glasgow. Between them the databases cover a period from 1852 to 1921. In addition the case notes of two eminent early paediatricians can be accessed, as can a library of articles and images relating to the four hospitals and to children’s health in Victorian and Edwardian Britain. Medical historians and demographers will find HHARP an invaluable tool in the study of the early development of paediatric medicine. Family historians and local historians will find a treasure trove of information on families and healthcare in Victorian and Edwardian London and Glasgow.

  • Annie Kerzia EastlandAnnie Kerzia Eastland: patient from November 1870-June 1871

    Annie Kerzia Eastland came to the Hospital for Sick Children on 21 November 1870, with necrosis of the tibia. She was nine years old. She stayed at the Hospital for over six months, and discharged ‘relieved'. Within a couple of months Annie was back, with the same diagnosis. In September, she went to Cromwell House, where she stayed for one month, and left improved. She did not return to Hospital, but her future was short, and Annie died at home in June 1873.
