Stanley Beal Hempstock birth??
« on: Tuesday 09 July 19 11:18 BST (UK) »
Hi all
I have a Stanley Beal written as  'adopted son' age 7 on the 1911 census, born in Worksop Notts living with a William Hempstock and his wife Annie Hempstock. On the 1939 record Stanley is written down as Stanley B Hempstock and his dob given as 4 November 1902, but I cannot find a birth registration for him. Also if he was 7 in 1911 surely his year of birth would be 1904.Could another pair of eyes please see if they can find anything as I am losing the will to live with this guy. Thanks in advance.

Possibly transcription error

Births Dec 1902 
BEAN    Stanley        Worksop    7b   29

No mother's maiden name given on the GRO site, so was illegitimate.

Oh wow thanks for that, I never thought of it as being a transcription error but the date and the year would definitely make sense if this is him.
Thanks loads for looking x

I'm just wondering now if Annie Hempstock was already pregnant with the illegitimate child (Stanley)when she married William Hempstock at the beginning of 1902 and William took the child on as his own and adopted him.

Except Annie’s maiden name wasn’t Beal, it was either Moore or Travis.

Marriages Mar 1902   
Hempstock    William       
Moore    Annie       
Travis    Annie       
Ward    Freddy Courtney       
Worksop    7b   43

Official adoption didn't start until  1927, so anything before that was usually arranged between friends and family or through the church.

Hi from 1901 census, her surname looks to be Travis.
