Looking for information about James Angus Reid. He's probably no longer alive, but my mother would dearly love to know what happened to him.
My mother, Patricia (nee Reid), was born in Gravesend, Kent and moved to Guernsey, Channel Islands aged about 2. Her mother died when she was very young. Her father was Frank Le Page, her mother Mabel Reid (nee Whiffen). Her parents weren't married and she thinks her mother had other children from her marriage to Mr Reid (unknown first name).
She remembers James Angus visiting them when she was a child, but he was a little older than her, and she's still not sure whether he was a child of her mother, or her mother's brother (she's not completely positive that Reid was her mother's married name). She hasn't seen him since she was a child but would love to know what happened to him.
Attached is a photo of him with my mother (on the right) and her sister, Wendy, and he looks to be around 10 years older at least. She was born in 1935, so he was probably born in the 1920s.
Hi to all. I'm wondering if anyone else using this site might also have this surname, I've managed to get back to a William Youd dob 1804 on my paternal side of my family. I'm a bit of a "newbie" so any help would be greatly recieved and appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
I was wondering if anyone had come across where to enquire/find the records for the House of Compassion, Pimlico around 1910/1911? The actual address was 61/63 Sutherland Street, St. George Hanover Square, London and was a home for unmarried mothers run by a charity. The 1911 census shows the residents and children at the time at the home and I can see baptisms of some of those residents/children living there at that time but these records don't answer my little mystery!
Also has anyone heard if it was not uncommon for an unmarried mother around that time to take the opportunity to baptise themselves under a new christian name in order to have a fresh start?
Hello my late uncle joined raf voluntary reserve in 1937 was based at raf preston in 1940 and raf Halton from 1943 to April 1945 .he rose rapidly using admin and language skills nb German and Polish from pilot officer to squadron leader and working in disarmament group got himself posted to raf detmold near Bielefeld and the hellish Belsen camp helping out on Jewish survivor resettlement .he was a religious Jew himself. Does this ring a bell with anyone. I have his forces no. 77838 but not his record . The internet is patchy and books on raf history have no jewish references
