The Birth Certificate arrived in the post today, and it does seem that Harold Nichol is Harold John Nicholls, so thanks everyone for your help!

Harold was born on the 24th April 1902, and named Harold John Nicholls. His mother was Sarah Anne Nicholls of no occupation. He was born at 2 Thornton Road, and father is not listed. What links it all together is that Sarah gives her address as 24 Caroline Road. Now to try and work out the link between Sarah and the Pamplins, and find out who she was!

That is a satisfactory result, I think that is your next search, perhaps the Pamplins took the poor girl in considering her circumstances

I'll try and see what I can find out about the address 2 Thornton Road, and also what I can find out about the Pamplins. The plot thickens!

Perhaps Thornton Road was a mother and baby home, she obviously went away to have her son

Happy hunting, hope you have good results

I think i've hit a bit of a dead end... 2 Thornton Road is inhabited by a couple in their 60s in 1901, so it is possible that Sarah Anne Nicholls knew them, and wenty there to give birth...

I can't seem to find out who was living at 24 Caroline Street during the  1901 census though - any suggestions where I could find this out online?

Thanks.

People had a very different way of life back then.  They moved around a lot as very few actually owned their own house compared to the number who paid rent.

They also took in lodgers on an ad hoc basis to either help their finances or to just help a friend etc.

Sarah may not even have been from Surrey and may have only gone there to have her baby and then returned "home". 

The most obvious connection to any of the 3 families mentioned would be via their wives - but none married a Nicholls.

Sarah could have been a "friend of a friend" or a distant relative of any of the families etc - the possibilities are endless and being realistic - your chances of finding her are very remote.

What is worth bearing in mind is that Harold was born in 1902 and Sarah gave Caroline St as her address at that time

However - the Pamplin's didn't marry until Sept qtr  1903 yet Harold is with them in 1911 at Caroline St.
