Hi Will, I have some bits and pieces, what's your interest?, regards Simon

Hey Simon, thanks. I'm interested in the adoption of Dorothy by Josephine. Are there any adoption records, who was Dorothy's mother, was there any guardian other than Josephine?

Also, any sign of a birth certificate?

So many questions, it's a real mystery.

Cheers

Will

Dorothy's 'adoption' predates official adoption in England so unless it was a legal arrangement done through a solicitor there probably won't be any paperwork.

Josephine's Will may provide provision or further details for Dorothy-
926 Fitzgerald Josephine of 52 The Close Salisbury widow died 2 November 1926 Probate Salisbury 4 December to Helen Nevill spinster and James Algernon Brown barrister-at-law. Effects 7489 8s.

Josephine's sister died 1929-
1929 Nevill Helen of 52 The Close Salisbury spinster died 6 January 1929 Probate Winchester 21 February to James Algernon Brown barrister-at-law and Gordon Tysen Legg retired ship owner. Effects 6002 11s 10d. Resworn 9345 17s 5d.
