Harold Nichol / Harold John Nicholls / Henry Banks Pamplin / Gregory
« on: Wednesday 15 January 14 19:24 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

This is a long shot, but am wondering if anyone knows anything about the 'Nurse child' Harold Nichol listed on Henry Banks Pamplin's census in 1911. ( Address 24 Caroline Road) There is a possibility that he may be the same Harold John Nicholls who was my great, grandfather - family history suggest that he was an orphan, and lived in Wimbledon. This census suggests that he was born c 1903, and this tallies up with what I know so far. I am trying to find out where he came from, and what he did up to 1928.

My Harold John Nicholls married Leah Gregory in 1928, (daughter of Thomas and Mary Jane Gregory of Wiltshire)  and I have been able to trace her family treee quite far back.

Thanks,

Laura

From freebmd

Births June qtr 1902
Harold John Nicholls    Kingston 2a 367

A nurse child was sometimes an illegitimate or unwanted child being brought up by foster parents for a small fee paid by the childs mother/family.  Alternatively - if the mother had died, the father may have placed the child and paid its keep.

A copy of his birth cert will give you more info

Thanks for your reply. All my searching keeps leading me back to that certificate, and can't seem to find any other 'Harold John' around then, so will order it, and hope that it may be the right one.

The Kingston Registration District did include Wimbledon for that period so the birth reg seems a likely one.  If he died 1969 onwards - his full birthdate will be shown on his death reg hence my query above

I can look up his death and find his birthdate so we can see if the 1902 birth is probable

Thanks for your help. I'm not too sure of his death date... he was on the  electoral registers in Surrey in 1965 still, and his wife Leah died in Sutton Surrey in 1984, - I think he would have died in the same area, but will have to check with my relatives as to the exact date. Sorry, that's not much to go at the moment. Just to confuse things, there is a Harold John Nicholls (Junior), who may also appear in some record searches.
