That word

Well; it is a very important word in Family History

And anyway, the automatic censor does not cut in and change it to 'thingy'

So, got to be ok

And as a son of one - its GOT to be alright ;D

Wow!  I learned a lot on Bastardy laws.  However, how would I find them in Yorkshire?  The persons in question were from Welwick and Ottrtingham.  These are small towns.

Would it possible that the local villages would have some record of the family.  I have just placed an order for parish records with the East Yorkshire Family History Society but bastardy bond publications do not seem to be offered.

By the way, I forgot to mention that Elizabeth had 2 sons in Ottringham before she married Joseph SHields.

I do apologize if the term "bastard" offends anyone.  This does seem to be the term used in old records.

Actually Bastard isn't used in earlier PR's but is in Victorian ones so go figure that out. The most common I have come across is Spurrious.  I am at present transcribing a Doncaster Parish baptisms ( wont say more on this yet) and the vicars use the term Single Woman.

Anyone who is offended by the word bastard shouldnt be doing genealogy because its there and a legitimate word

Hi again Nutkin,

if I am correct and Welwick is East Riding ( dumb Aussie here! ;D ) you might have some luck at this site-

Thanks for the tid-bit.  I will have to contact them to do some overseas work.  I live in the US and learning how the UK goverment is set up to find records has been a steep learning curve for an impatient genealogist. ;D

I know how you feel Kristin - being in Australia made things a bit hard for me too - but this is a great site and I have found out heaps since joining.

Don't be afraid to ask questions as everyone is friendly and helpful.

Good Huntin'
