Do you know what their parents names were?
There are several different Bray families with children born in Stepney from 1935 to 1948.

Your Mother's name, please?

Added:
You have Patricia Bray, 1921, in your tree.
Is this her and, if so, is that definitely her year of birth, and do you know if the area is also Stepney?
Thank-you

Added:
So you believe you have siblings Robert Bray and Margaret Bray.
Your Mother was not married to either father, so their birth on free bmd should show Bray/Bray for surnames.
They should be born between 1935 and 1940.
However if your Mother was born 1921, had child when she was 14?

Your Mother had 2 sisters and a brother, and you are not sure about name order for them. Do you know anything about approximate years of birth for them?

Thank-you

Added:
I was informed by pm that she was 14 at birth of first child.

?
Charles Frederick Bray
Birth Date: 30 May 1928
Date of Registration: May 1992
Age at Death: 64
Registration district: Hendon
Inferred County: Middlesex
Volume: 13
Page: 481
But Hendon is not Richmond.

And Patricia not showing.

Would that Charles Frederick be old enough to be demobbed after WW2?

patchem

patchem Report 20 Jan 2013 19:47

By demobbed, could she also mean after National Service which continued after WW2?

Unknown Report 20 Jan 2013 19:51

yes possibly and hendon and stepney in the 1940s were together

Valerie,
Do you know when and where your Mother was born, and was her name Patricia Bray at birth?
Thanks

Added:
I have been told that her Mother was 14 at birth of first child, and parents may have been Irish. Also, various lies told so information....

Who is the Margaret you mention above?

patchem

patchem Report 20 Jan 2013 22:47

When were you last in contact with your Mother, and what name was she using then?
Do you think she could have been born in Ireland (which could be why her birth is not obvious)?
Thank-you.

hi my half sister was called margaret,i think my mother was probably born in ireland but cannot be sure ps sorry about the lack of punctuation but im only just learning .

patchem

patchem Report 21 Jan 2013 07:10

Could the birth that I posted be her?
When were you last in contact with her, and what name was she using?
If you know an exact date of birth, then deaths can be looked for using that information, regardless of current surname (but obviously correct name helps).
Do you know if she ever married - so that if there is a certificate you could find her Father's name?
Thank-you

Was your half sister Margaret born in 1944?

Can we go back to the beginning with this Valerie. What is your date of birth and what name were you born under?
