Hickling family, Nottinghamshire 1880s
« on: Monday 28 July 14 18:55 BST (UK) »
I'm currently researching my dad's side of the family, going up his mum's route, with her maiden name being Hickling. I have found records for her father William, but when it gets to William's father - Alfred, born 1880 - it gets difficult. There is no record for his birth that I've found, but have his death certificate and found out the birth that way, there's also no marriage certificate, but I know for certain who he married. I tried to get further back to Alfred's father, but can not find anything! I found in the 1881 Census that Alfred was one, living with his sister Mildred, but with another family, surname May. All in all, how do I find out about potential adoption/fosterings for around 1881, or would there be another reason as to why I can't find anything else about Alfred's parents?

Thanks for you help, and sorry for the long windedness, haha.

Great, thank you! I originally found that they were living at 28 Holden Street, but this makes much more sense, can't believe I missed that
