Bedfordshire Lookup Requests / Re: Father died then a son was born.

You never know. Since she was a married woman she, and the baby, would appear under her late husband's surname even if he was provably not the father. The certificate might name him anyway, or no father at all, or you could look up "James Walter" with the relevant details to see if there's another entry under a different surname, which might suggest two different parental surnames on the certificate.

A christening, if you can find one, might potentially be more likely to name the biological father.

Beat me to it as well...

I've got another Edwin in my tree (also a WALKER!) that is interchangeably Edward.

Yes. I believe there was a change in the law around this time that allowed for a birth cert to be reissued in order to legitimise a child of parents who subsequently married.

It was Samuel that died in 1932 (the baby is the ladies arms). The two other boys in the photo are Charles and John.

The parents would've been 24 and 20 in 1921!

Oh, whoops lol I'm blaming it on being late at night here!

Ah, that's possible at least. Most marriages in my tree are around mid-20s or so, I did wonder if an earlier marriage date would make them suspiciously young.

I've had children christened twice, but you don't usually forget you got married  ;D I'm pretty sure my ancestors as mentioned previously only married at that point because he was in the military and they needed to be married for certain benefits. Either they decided to be honest or they needed to provide some kind of proof I guess.

I'm guessing no 1921 marriage entry has been found yet?

One of mine was 6 months pregnant with their third child when they finally got married, despite having lived as such for years (and she even married under his surname- no wonder it took us so long to find it!)

If you have a Charles dying in 1932 aged 1, were there two different children?

Also out of curiosity, how old would the parents have been in 1921?

Lancashire / Re: Meaning of "Base" on Baptismal Record

Provided the dates were given correctly. I've got two in my tree where children collided with each other- one with John born Apr 1805 and Hannah Dec 1805 (no other indications of there being two families) and the other, more pointedly, Sophia Sept 1800 and John Dec 1800 where, crucially, the instructions of Shute Barrington led to the latter records having the father's name, occupation and residence and the mother's name, maiden name, father's name and father's occupation. We speculated that Sophia might have been born in 1799 but the vicar wrote 1800 out of habit.

Looks like Base to me, just with the old form s (Bafe)

Baseborn is a common remark in old parish records, as well as "natural son/dau"- as Neale said, meaning illegitimate. This is backed up by Ann being the daughter of her mother (Margaret) on the record rather than daughter of her father.
