Hi,

Who was the informant on the birth certificate; the mother or the father?

 It IS possible that  James Lawe was  using  his second name   ( or possibly  decided to call himself  James  for whatever reason )

I think that his name may well have been James and the job was correct,but she told everyone that his surname was Lawe and pretended to be married to him.

The family seem to come from Horncastle,so no one knew them in Retford and she could have kept up the pretence by saying that her hubby died int he war.

Hmm....father could be an invention; I have a birth certificate for a distant family member where the mother's maiden name was the same as her married name. No marriage found, the child took the surname of mother's husband when she did marry.

 That's  possible   too  Carole  , anything to   appear  to  be  'correct' to  folk

Thats true, my Mum and I cant figure out why Nellie moved from Horncastle area to 55, London Road, East Retford yet. Just dont know. Tis a shame that its all a bit convoluted really.
