My husband's grandmother was adopted but not officially as it was about 1890. When she married in 1907 she was using her adopted father's name which was Joseph William Payne b1838.
I don't know much about adoption, official or otherwise. It doesn't look as though her birth was registered which would have been abt 1889 St Pancras, she is in the 1891 census which tells us she was adopted, Gladys or Dorothy as she was known died in 1978.

Will I find a birth for her?? As it's been more than 100 years I thought the information may be out there now?? I don't have much experience with adoption so I don't know what information there will be about her birth family??

Many thanks
Amanda
