Edward and Ellen Hitchmough?

Quite possible there was that long of a delay if getting to 'the big town' was an issue.

I think there was a fine if you took longer than a certain amount of time to register an event, so sometimes registered dates were not exact. I have a number of baptisms in my family a month or so before the child was born, which is pretty good going. :)

Thady was often used as a pet name for Timothy. In the Latin registers they put it as Thaddeus. It can also appear for the name Tadhg.

Crikey! Re FDD, she was only in her 30s. Perhaps they asked her about family history? That's an interesting one.

Thank you for your help Sandra.

United States of America / Help with border crossing card terms/codes please

I have an ancestor, Bridget Hughes who eventually got into the US, but has a couple of Border Crossing Cards. I am curious about a couple of entries on those cards.

One gives the reason for rejection as 'No CIV' (or possibly 'No C1V'). What would that refer to?

The second entry is under 'Medical Certificates' on the rear of the card, where it says 'Afflicted with FDD'. Again, any suggestions as to what that was?

Much obliged for anyone's time and/or help.

I wouldn't rule out the much more common Flannery as an option.
