To all those who have expressed concerns regarding my posting can I put you right. The only person living now is John who is looking for his daughter, Yvonne the birth mother is deceased as is Mary and George Sutton (Mary being his first wife )and also we believe that Eileen is also deceased. If I have given too much information then I apologise as I am a novice on this site. I have edited the second message that I have put out and I hope that I have done it correctly. I have also contacted the site for advice regarding my original posting as I have not intentionally set out to offend anyone. I hope this clears that issue. If however anyone else has any advice or concerns please get back to me. To further clear some moe points John was in a relationship with yvonne and was informed of the birth of the child. Thanks Diane

Read all the posts advising you of what you have done wrong.......on page one of this thread. are posting too much personal info about living people............which constitutes invasion of privacy

You must consider the feelings of other people................they matter just as much as yours


diane Report 7 Nov 2012 10:43

I have been told to go to my threads as I may be reported to Genes Reunited Have I done something wrong I am new to this sort or thing.


brummiejan Report 3 Nov 2012 13:08

Folks, I have PM'd Diane and advised her to change her posting. Might I suggest we give her a bit of time to do this before reporting it? I totally agree it needs reporting if this doesn't happen.


brummiejan Report 3 Nov 2012 13:05

Diane, as pointed out there is far too much info on your thread, both from a confidentiality point of view and also making your query far too confusing.
It is unclear how you have come across this info re.Angela. You haven't bothered to explain how you know the existence of Yvonne Sutton, and why you want to track this person down. You really must respond to questions and give feedback to what people are saying.
You must remove the bulk of what you have put before the posting gets reported.
As far as I can see nobody can do any more than you are doing yourself to be honest.


Reggie Report 3 Nov 2012 09:05

This thread gives real cause for concern, especially as Diane has not given any indication of her connection (if any) to the people she is discussing in public, without their knowledge or consent


Penny Report 3 Nov 2012 07:04

Think i am going to report diane's update as unsuitable and ask for it to be removed. its too revealing and too recent


Penny Report 3 Nov 2012 06:58

Too much info given!
My guess would be the birth mother as died and this info has been found in the back of a wardrobe or something, a file/envelope she kept.


Reggie Report 2 Nov 2012 22:46

I am astonished that you think it's OK to post so much personal info about living people on this insecure site.............or indeed, that you would post it anywhere


patchem Report 2 Nov 2012 21:37

How do you know John Thornton is the father? Does he know?


brummiejan Report 1 Nov 2012 18:48

Diane, I am really confused by this I must say. Is all the info above the same as the original query, with the exception of the adoption order for this Angela Sutton?
Is an adoptive name ever given, I thought this was confidential?


diane Report 1 Nov 2012 17:58

Can anyone help :-) to trace a birth certificate which should match with an adoption certificate I have located in this matter. Entry Number 01051 Reg District Hemsworth Sub District Hemsworth Western. Name at Birth Angela Sutton born 22nd June 1967 Adoption Order made on 11th December 1967 Date of entry 1st January 1968: Order made in Middlesbrough County Court, granted by A Crisp-Comotto ADOPTED NAME: ANGELA YORK.. wE ARE TRYING TO TRACE A DAUGHTER Born to YVONNE SUTTON who was unmarried and lived at 72 Borough Road Redcar, Teesside. Resided there with her father George William Sutton who was married initially to a Mary Richardson on 11th March 1940.He resided at 6a Borough Road Middlesbrough she at 5 St Margarets Grove Redcar, George remarried on 7th December 1960 . He is on the marriage certificate as a Widower aged 4years and he married Eileen Sowerby aged 38 years a Spinster. who was living at 39 Buckingham Road Redcar George died on 4tyh May 1971 and Eileen Sutton remarried a Ronald Snaith in 1973.As we can find no trace of Yvonne Suttons birth we assume she was adopted??? However we do know that she became pregnant the father was John Thornton who was married at that time. She went toa home for unmarried mothers somewhere in Yorkshire and a Rev Wordsworth from Christ Church Coatham Redcar was involed in the adoption. However we have receved no help from them despite their initial promises . Any help would be appreciated as we are at a loss. Thought is we could check the certificate against the adoption entry this might show that YVONNE is the mother.

Yes you have!!


diane Report 9 Jun 2012 20:37

Jan not sure if I have done this right


patchem Report 31 May 2012 20:28

Do you know if Eileen Sowerby/Sutton/Snaith is still alive (and what is her Father's name?)

When do you think Yvonne was born, as she could belong to a wife pre-marriage?


brummiejan Report 31 May 2012 18:31

Nudge for Diane (PM sent to me).


patchem Report 27 May 2012 09:27

Have you looked to see if anyone has any of these people in their trees on here, and have you entered them in your tree, so that known relatives can contact you?
What is your connection to these people?


brummiejan Report 27 May 2012 09:10

I don't think the one I found is relevant to be honest, as it is in Bradford! I just looked for an Yvonne Sutton born Yorkshire 1930-50 (you know how it is on Ancestry, using 10 year span either side of 1940). This was the only one.
We need a bit of feedback here don't we.


patchem Report 27 May 2012 07:44

I looked for Sutton/Sutton births on free bmd from 1960 to 1968 - only March 1961 gave any hits. This was confirmed when I looked at the coverage charts. Not much use.

I then tried ancestry, and that refused to play also, it refused to give me surname Sutton, just mother's surname Sutton, I was perplexed.

Did you mean the Franka Yvonne birth, as there is a possible marriage of Frank Sutton, but a year later, that could be that one? (Also a twin)

To narrow things down, look for Sutton births around 1964 where the mother's maiden name is also Sutton. If there were an adoption, there should be an S marked and the the of the volume number.
