Unusual annotation on 1939 Register
« on: Saturday 29 September 18 20:22 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone!

This is my first post (I'm ashamed to say!) but I was looking for some kind of help and advice regarding the 1939 Register.  I'll try to keep this as short as I can but basically my Nan (Joan Hodgson nťe Beard) was born in 1933 and adopted in 1936 - I'm struggling to actually find anything out for the adoption mum or the birth mum.  I've found my Nan on the 1939 Register living as a visitor in Billericay, Essex with a Laura Beard born in 1912 (annotation next to Laura in address column shows as "Hay Med 23 5 61 SY M (310)".  When I was younger I knew Nan had a sister called Laura.  First off I was wondering if the Laura Beard on the Register would be the adopted Mum and secondly there are 2 names above my Nan and Laura (Dennis b. 1939 and Anne).  The record above Anne says it is officially closed, but next to Anne in the address column it literally says "STOP! Refer all (looks like) pigs (?!) to Mr Jennings".

Has anyone seen this before or could anyone guess what it means!

I do have a copy of the Register if anyone wanted to see it to try and make sense of it all!  (Wasn't sure whether it would be ok to post it on here or not).

Sorry to go on but I'm at a real brick wall with Nan and would appreciate any help.

Thanks

Could the divorced Laura Beard be a daughter of the Knight family?

The 23 5 61 in Lauraís annotation should be the date of an amendment to her entry - perhaps the notification of her change of surname to Allen? Canít immediately see a corresponding marriage.

I canít help on the other annotation.  Others here know much more about the technicalities of these annotations than I do :)

Thank you IgorStrav for your quick reply.  My Mum had mentioned a Harry in the past but she was not quite sure on the family connection - plus on Harry and Georgina's entries there is no O, V etc but I can only guess they are husband and wife and the blanked out records could be the children?

That's the problem with adoptions - but I know Beard was definitely my Nan's maiden name.  It was just the annotation with Stop! that made me question.

Plus my Nan was actually born in Lambeth and of course the address on the Register is Billericay, Essex so I'm guessing Nan was evacuated with family?  Nan settled in Billericay as she met my Grandad there and I was born there too.

Sorry for going on!  But I really need some help!

Harry Knight & Georgina King were married Jun qtr 1910 Canterbury.

Their first child was Harry Charles Thomas Knight, b 12 Feb 1911 East Ham (reg West Ham).

It looks as though Laura b 24 Oct 1912 was their second child.

They then had Reginald and Dennis (twins) on 2 Oct 1915.  Dennis died in early infancy, Dec qtr 1915.

When I was younger I knew Nan had a sister called Laura.

I looked for Beard/Knight children - in Mar 1940 there is a child born Beard MMN Knight - Brentwood 4a 1540 - she is also indexed under Allen MMN Knight
