Please see attached record which I have only just come across for an ancestor. So many questions!
What does 'By whose Order' mean, who had him committed? If so, what or who is Goldsmith? And on discharge 'By whose order' does 'To father' mean he was released to his father or did his father request his release?
On the second document, what is a diet class? and what do all the letters and numbers mean for parish and after date of order of admission?
Many thanks for any help or pointers to where I might find the answers!!
