    Nurse Child (Nurse)

    Hello FidgeonJ, I've recently found the same term (Nurse Child) against one of my ancestry infants, living with a related family to that child. This infant was 4mnths old. I presume that the birth mother either died at the birth or perhaps was too ill after the birth to care for the babe. The...

    Hello Edward, It's so long since I last logged on that I'm pretty much like a new member! Traumatic times intervened but I'm now trying to get back into family investigations and wonder if you are still researching the Trodds. I have to backtrack through all my information but hope to add and...

    Thank you Rob and your research is very much appreciated. The more I research my Laz the more complicated becomes the problem! I seem to be permanently stuck with the 40 odd years of his life between his youth and up to when he disappears from Wycombe. If you look back over the entries you...

    Rob66, Laz born Chard and Laz born Stonehouse are both on my shortlist for being father to my Laz. No proof for either. In case you haven't already seen the following, which may interest you, have a read as it all still holds good. Laz and Sarah Burns marriage certificate:- Married January...

    Hello Rob66! It's good to hear from you as every scrap of information helps and new contacts might just have that bit of the puzzle which fits it all together! Apart from which, the more Laz hunters the better for seeking out what might help at least one of us as these Laz's are proving a bit...

    Hello Juliejtp! Having trawled through every Lazarus entry I could find, even making allowances for incorrect name spelling, I had not found any of the information you have so many thanks indeed for this data! I'll check these through and will let you know the outcome. Even if they prove not...

    Hello all! Back to Trodds for the moment and the missing Abraham.:( There are several Abraham (possible Trodds?) to be found in the Channel Islands; mostly Guernsey. I say 'possible' as the surname is Torode. Would you agree it feasible that Torode could have become Trodd when it reached...

    Hello All, I thought we were known to each other on Genes Maggie which means that I know how thorough you are with research; and you've very quickly proved that with what you've already found regarding Laz & Sarah. Appreciative thanks indeed as it's a completely new angle. What you have found...

    Hello! As promised I've returned to submit more of Laz. Yet again I've checked 1841 & 1851 census but no Laz; not even as Lay. This doesn't really surprise me as it's strongly believed he changed his name for two reasons; Laz Roberts was probably deemed far more sophisticated for a professional...

    Hello All! A little more on Kenith via biographical data: Apparently, he hates his name being incorrectly spelt (not that it looks correctly spelt!). For many years he and the writer Dennis Potter were best of friends but they had a falling out and the relationship was never repaired. :'(...
