Can anyone make out this middle name?
« on: Saturday 05 September 20 01:41 BST (UK) »
I’ve got a birth certificate where the mother has a middle name (I’ve never seen this on any of the other marriage, birth, death certificates with her name before)

Margaret ——- Hamilton.... any ideas what this could be?

It looks like Frances to me.  Is this the baptism for that child?

Thank you Debra! I didn’t even think of Frances. She’s listed as “Fanny” a few times on other documents I’ve found (I assumed it was some weird nickname for Margaret like “Peggy”).

This was on a birth certificate.
