Hello Jean and welcome to the Community boards.

It looks as though one other member on this site has Lillian in their tree. If you click on the Search button above and then on Search all Trees, simply add Lillian (with two L's) into the box and you will see what I mean. You can contact the tree owner to see if they know anymore about her. Hope this helps. Cx

I know what happened to most of her siblings. Around 1923 Lillian Shipton came to visit her daughter, my mother, in London and had a baby with her by the name of Vera, I believe. Since then I do not have any knowledge of her whereabouts. There are no marriage records in the UK for her. No one left to ask now. I would just like to know what happened to her.

I may be wrong Shirley but I thought that Jean's Mum was the Lilian born in 1910?

Jean, where was your Mum living around the time that Lillian (Senior) visited with Vera please?

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it Report 14 Jan 2013 22:11

Thats what i thought too but Jean hasn't confirmed that.

I cant see a Vera with mmn Shipton or a marriage or death for Lilian as Shipton

rootgatherer Report 14 Jan 2013 22:42

No, neither could I Shirley. Not that many Lil* Shipton marriages to chose from either.

Perhaps she just took her partner's name and her death was registered in that name.

PM from Jean.

Lillian was my grandmother. There is no trace of a marriage for her in the UK. She came to visit my mother, her daughter in 1923 with a baby I believe was called Vera. No trace of her beyond that date
