I think Mr Shipman is more likely to be William than Thomas. James marries as Denhart, father William Denhart (dec), cabman.

Family History Beginners Board / Re: Can't find this birth registration

If Beatrice/Birdie's birth was registered with Elizabeth Sawyer as a single woman, would there be a father on the birth certificate?

Is it safe to assume that if the baby had been Edward McArthy's, that they would have been given McArthy as a surname rather than Sawyer?

I've seen a scenario before where a baby who was adopted was registered with the adopted parents name as a middle name. Was that common practice if it was known who would adopt?

Depends how honest the parents are with registrar about their marital status. You quite often find a child born to a single mother with the father's surname as a middle name - that's what's raised my suspicions here

I agree that you see what you want/think.  I recently commented on a old photo of a childhood neighbour and her daughter and how similar they were, only to be told the daughter was adopted

I assume Edward McCarthy and Elizabeth J weren't married - there's an Elizabeth J Sawyer born in the right place and time (Lee, Kent c1858) who could be mother

Her mother's maiden name appears to be Cook, although I can;t find her birth (unlike the siblings)

You've got a fair bit of metaphorical/religious type language here that doesn;t go through a literal machine translation very well. I'll try my learner's best

By today she has bid farewell to everything, above all no longer suffering from disappointment and affliction. We admire her commendable faithful experience whilst waiting as it were on the waterside to cross to the other side. She longed to go, as she felt it would be better to be allowed to be with Christ
