John Burchell 1 Moor Lane, West Harton, South Shields

Does any one know, or knows of someone who would have information about a baby boy born December 15th 1921 at 1 Moor Lane, West Harton, also, his mother who sadly died on February 8th 1922 at the same address, also C P Hill who registered her death.
The baby was John Burchell and his mother was Louise Burchell (nee Carhart). I am desperate to find some news of the boy, and of any family, he might have had.

Hi onemanracer,

Welcome to Rootschat!  Your search may be a little difficult because you are potentially looking for someone who may still be alive, and Rootschat do not allow look ups of living people.

I can say that from looking at the record index, there are no other children born with surname Burchell and mothers maiden name Carhart, and that the only marriage between those names took place in 1914 (Mar qtr, Castle W 10b 491).  Names Fred Burchell and Louisa J Carhart.

Dear Spidermonkey,
Many Thanks for your reply, I understand John could be alive, but as now he would be 93 it makes it very unlikely. I have the birth and death certificates of Fred Burchell and Louise as Fred was my father. I also have John's Birth certificate.
Regards Freddy.

Did your dad ever talk about John?  It may be that he was taken in by family members - looking at the 1911 census, Louise seems to have several siblings.  Have you traced any of their descendants?  They may have heard talk?

It might be worth contacting Tyne and Wear archives, and see if they have records for the Board of Guardians to see if John was formally adopted.  You might find some more tips and links here too http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/familyhistory/bloodlines/familysecrets.shtml?entry=national_adoption_register&theme=familysecrets
