  6. Illegitimacy in 1830/1 - Wedmore, Somerset

    Does anyone know how I'd go about either finding the identity of the father or mother of one of my ancestors. I've been able to ascertain Edwin Raines Dowling was baptised in 1831 in Wedmore Somerset and was born to a single woman by the name of Ann. Anything before that I've hit a brickwall....

  7. Hackney Maternity Hospital

    My grandmother, Minnie Edith Charman was born to her unmarried mother, Lily, in Hackney Maternity Hospital in 1903. I found here http://www.workhouses.org.uk/SA/ that the Salvation Army used to run a maternity hospital in Hackney for unmarried mothers around that time, so I am hoping that is the...

  10. Sarah ROUD - Rotherhithe, 1908

    Anyone searching for the father of Sarah ROUD's illegitimate child, born Rotherhithe, May 1908, should look at Charles William ASH's WW1 Service Records (WO 363). Of interest as a piece of social history - the Magistrate's Order (3s per week) was made in May 1908. The Army compulsorily deducted...

  13. Can someone explain the difference, please?

    I see reference on OPC sites to Bastardy Bonds but no references to Affiliation Orders I think I know what Bastardy Bonds were in place for but what were the repercussions for an 'alledged' father named in an Affiliation Order? Thanks
