Could anyone make sense of this entry please.
Extract from the Baptism Parish Record on 5th April 1986

Thorne - Catherine Helen Dearlove
d. Ada Mary Single Woman.
Born 29 Feb 1896

Thorne - Lofthouse Simon or Ivan (sic)
s. Ada Mary Single Woman.
Born 29 Feb 1896

That is exactly as it is written (I tried to copy and paste it from the clipboard but do not know how to do that)

Does it mean that Ada Mary had illegitimate twins and was not sure of the father so gave the children surnames of possibles :)

Ada Mary Thorne goes on to marry a William Gee, has Reginald and looks after Robert (her sister's son) in 1901 but I cannot find any other reference to these to two children.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Regards Mutley

Thanks very much Sue,
Ellen is her sister's name but where she got the other names from, I have no idea.
She married William in 1898 and the twins are not with her in the 1901 census. Now you have given me the correct names I think I shall see if they died young.

Thanks again
Regards Mutley
