One other route we could go down is tracing one of the older girls relatives. We know that Christiana Shepherd married a Henry Harrison in Southwell in 1881, but I dont have acess to census to see if I could find where she lived or if she had children, and if they had children etc. I wondered if one of these might have been told the reason why.
Would be an idea to try and get her marrage cert because it would say who and what her father was/did. Seems funny that Christiana married as a Shepherd and Mary Charlotte changed her name to Sharp. I'm not sure about the elder girl, Emma Jane, as there does not seem to be alot of info about her......

WOW osprey well done!!!! :D

Just a note about Steven Foulston.

It appears he was born out of wedlock to Jane before she ever met George Shepherd when she was young, and we dont know his father but thats why he uses the surname foulston.In fact I dont think he ever changed it did he? She was born in Hiblestow, Lincs.  My great grandad was Frederick Foulston Sharp so it was used as a middle name for him. It's definately the same family we just now need to keep going and see if those names you have found give us any new leads.

Perhaps we might not find out what it was, or maybe if we do we might wish we had left well alone!!!

A big THANKYOU again  :D

Stephen was Sharp in 1871. Emma Jane is enumerated as sister in 1901, and she seems to have taken young Christina visiting, so must have been close.
 When I was looking up the family before, I seem to remember that I saw some Foulstone records on the IGI and they were extracted rather than submitted, so more reliable.
