    Default Adoption Records

    Just found my first Adoption and do not know how to go finding out about it.

    May Lillian Byles Mothers name Elizabeth Byles was born on 12 April 1892 Union workhouse, East, Leicestershire, England.
    1901 May is living with Tom and Emma Russell as May L Russell
    1911 She is still living with Tom and Emma under her real name of May L Byles as their Adopted Child
    1919 May marries Frank J Auger as May L Russell. (Auger family is my connection)
    They have children and go to live in Austraila.

    I have all Infomation about them.

    BUT can not find anything about her mother Elizabeth Byles.

    And how do I find Adoption record for that time !!!!

    Sandy, have you noticed that we have a section about adoption pre 1911 (including a couple of stickies) in the Topics forum? There might be something useful there...

    indeed, nor me. Elizabeth Ann Byles also with no mother's maiden name. So her mother might I suppose be the Elizabeth Byles born Leicester 1843, parents William & Mary.

    May Lilian daughter of Elizabeth BYLES, Single Woman - Abode is Union Workhouse Infirmary according to the Parish Register. No 'r' in May when compared to Marys on the page. One of 3 Baptisms to Single women from the workhouse on that date.
