Adoption?
« on: Monday 06 August 18 13:21 BST (UK) »
Could these children been adopted?

Researching the Cresswell family

Francis Joseph Cresswell born 1822 Norfolk, married to Charlotte Frances Georgina Gough-Calthorpe, born 1824 in 1850

They seem to have 4 children

Charlotte Rachel Frederica Cresswell b 1851 Norfolk
George Francis Addison Cresswell b 1852       ditto
Edith Frances Louisa Cresswell b 1854            ditto
Cresswell Augustus Cresswell b 1856

Now the problems
According to the Gro Records
Charlotte's father was called Pitcher, mother Pye
George's father was Gunton, mother's surname was Hawkes

The 2 other children parents were Francis and Charlottes


Any help would be appreciated

Charlotte Pitcher seems to have remained with her mother Charlotte (who was remarried by 1861 to a John Wm Lane).  Henry Pye in the household too (as father in law to Mr Lane) seems to confirm this family corresponds to the Mar qtr 1851 birth registration.

1861: RG9/1218/77/18.

It is worth looking for birth announcements in newspaper archives, Mrs f j cresswell and the Hon Mrs cresswell birth notices in Norfolk for several children, maybe they did not register the first two

Maybe they were actually born in a smart London maternity hospital.
