Lee Giles Whitehead
« on: Thursday 15 October 20 13:55 BST (UK) »
1871 with parents and siblings in Biddenden
1881 dito
1891 with father widower and brother at home in Biddenden
1893 married Harriet Springett
1895 lee giles whitehead born in Willesborough Kent was bap in Biddenden mother Elizabeth Whitehead ? who was the father.
1901 liviing in Biddenden with Harriet and Lee Whitehead adop daughter. aged 7
1910 Harriet died
1911 living alone with a housekeeper Thrift Villa Kenardington Kent mil was also there. no Lee
1917 married Ruth
1920 daughter Phoebe born
1939 living in Tenterden with Ruth and her sister Mabel is also there, Ruth's sil wife of her brother Henry known as Harry no Phoebe or Lee
1940 died
the above is the short version of the life of Frank Giles. My interest here is what happened to
 Lee Whitehead given in the 1901 census as his adoptive daughter. I found a baptism for Lee Giles Whitehead 2.10.1895 in Biddenden mother given as Elizabeth no father second name of Giles made my ears prick up and I cant help feel that there is some connection. I have always thought that Lee was a boys name but on the census it says adopt daug. Cant find Lee any further down the line.
also his second child Phoebe with his second wife is nowhere to be found. Any help is much appreciated.

There appears to be no record of any birth at all.  This is the info from Family Search

Lee Giles Whitehead, christened on 2 October 1895 at Biddenden, Kent.  Mother Elizabeth Whitehead.

No image available for the above.

I have found the below on Find My Past, again no image available.

Born on 10th March 1894 and baptised on 27 October 1895 at Biddenden, Kent

Giles Whitehead, son of Elizabeth - stated as illegitimate.

The Family Search record does not state whether the child is son of or daughter of.

Is this the same child?????

The baptism with image on FindMyPast has the name as William Giles Whitehead but it doesn't look like William to me , maybe the transcriber thought it was Wm for William . Abode of mother is entered as Biddenden but has been crossed out and changed to London.

This might be the birth reg.

WHITEHEAD, LOU        -     
GRO Reference: 1894  M Quarter in PADDINGTON  Volume 01A  Page 46

This ties in with the Biddenden Parish Register entry for a Whitehead child, illegitimate, where the abode was London. This baptism is indexed as William Giles Whitehead but looks to me like Lu or Lee.
