Help with school record - please
« on: Saturday 01 August 20 16:44 BST (UK) »
I would be very grateful if someone could try to decipher the word in brackets between "David" and "Big Yard"; the column is for the name of the parent of the child. It has me completely foxed!

It looks like Mad but I agree that it says dead.

Welcome to Rootschat  :D

This looks like David's birth reg.

GRO Reference: 1893  S Quarter in BASFORD  Volume 07B  Page 139

Below is probably his parents marriage

Marriages Mar 1885   
Bunting    William        Belper    7b   639

Thank you all for your really helpful and fast replies! I had seen that the 1901 census listed David's mother as a widow and I had also noticed David and his sisters wedding certificates also noted that their father was dead but intriguingly another sibling's wedding certificate from a similar time did not list her father as dead. William (David's father) was in court in 1893 for beating his wife and I wondered if the family simply chose to say he was dead so I was looking for collaborating information but could not make out the word on the school report. The other piece of my puzzle is that I can't find a death registered for William between about 1893 and 1901!
Thank you again for all your input!
