Welcome to the website. The aim is to provide a bit more information on Greenwich Pensioners, as there is not a great deal out there about this former institution.
The Q and A should give a bit more info about my motivations for creating the site. All of the other information should be self-explanatory.
Please do note:
an ex-sailor (or ex-Royal Marine) living in Royal Hospital Greenwich would be known as an "in-Pensioner." Those persons who were in receipt of a pension, but lived elsewhere, were known as "out-pensioners".
If you have an ancestor whose occupation is "Greenwich Pensioner" in the census, and he is living with his family, he will be an out-Pensioner.
This website is about the in-Pensioners. There is some detail about out-Pensioners in the Q and A, which may be of interest.
