    Welcome to this thread, Caroline. It's been a while since I've looked at the TRODD family but if you need help with anything in particular just ask :)

    Hello quaygirl Lovely to have found another TRODD descendent. A lot of work went into sorting out this family. All the contributors have been quiet for a few years.

    I see you've been working hard. There are many gaps in the records for St Mary Extra. :(

    Hi Edward, I don't suppose Thomas PARKER left a will mentioning his illegitimate child. :o

    I think Annie's mother was Dorathy CHAMBERS - in 1881 she is aged 24 and living with her parents, James & Elizabeth in Alma Road, Woolston, South Stoneham. Annie is not with her. RG11/1217 folio 47 page 31 By 1891 Dorothy is in Hull married to Frank O'CONNOR. Annie is with them, aged 12...

    It's strange that you can find no reference to Annie before 1891. I've looked and can't see her either. :confused: Have you tried writing to the register office at Southampton? Her birth may have been omitted from the GRO indexes. Another place that might be worth checking is the baptism...

    If this man was leading a double life it may have come to light after his death. Did he leave a will? Have you searched newspapers for missing persons advertisements, reports of scandal or bigamy? As for the TRODDS - I'm frustrated :( We have found out so much :biggrin: .... but still...

    I've been trying to search The Gazette for more entries for Richard TRODD but the print is too poor for the software to recognise the characters. :( I feel that Richard is a possible candidate to be John's father - if I could find out that he was in prison when John was born, I could eliminate...

    Hi Clare, Pleased to see yet another TRODD researcher on this thread. I think we looked at the Hursley TRODDS earlier in this thread (there's an awful lot of info here eek) ) and decided they were another family. John says he was not born in Hampshire on the 1841 census. While this info...

    I'm been busy over the past few weeks so haven't had the time to post on this forum. Edward, I am so jealous. I'd love to have a family sampler like that. How lovely to see a picture of the Florinda. I had a very quick look at the indexes of Hound parish registers. There are several TRODD...
