It is slightly confusing but I think I understand now.

I would say that you would need to confirm why your informant says this - is it a family story etc or is there more reliable information.

William would have a nephew Frederick not a brother, I think.

Hi

So the detail is "her address" ?!?

I ask for detail that you have so we can (hopefully) prove / disprove which one of the 2x births are "yours".
Rather than just assume.

Why are you with-holding her address?

Please give us ALL the detail you have, no matter how small you feel it may be.

Thank you.
Ray

Think there might still be Burtons at Oakamoor, East Wall Farm.
