I’m doing some research on behalf of Louisa Constable who is a friend of my New Zealand cousin who’s mother recently found that she was adopted as a baby, she has just found out that her real parents were Leonard Allen and Myrtle Winifred Alice Allen, nee Bacon, who were married at Yapton 3rd August 1940. Leonard (aged 21) was stationed at Ford RNAS and Myrtle (aged 20) was in domestic service.
Last week I went along to our local archives and looked through the birth index and found these children for a couple with the surname of Allen & Bacon, although I’m not yet sure whether they are all of the same family.
(1) Pauline A.born North Walsham, 4th qtr 1941 (2) Irene D.born North Walsham, 1st qtr 1943 (3) Christopher G. H. born Surrey, 2nd qtr 1947 (4) Albert W. born North Walsham, 2nd qtr 1948 (5) Rosemary born Worthing, 2nd qtr 1950
The Rosemary above is Louisa’s mother who was adopted and re named Jennifer Deeks and eventually emigrated to New Zealand. It is only since her adopted mothers death recently that she found she was adopted and would like to know if she has any other relations living in the U.K.
If you can link with any of the above we would be pleased to hear from you.
