Hi my birth name was Trevor Satterley born in Doncaster 1954

My family lived in Hamilton Avenue, Springwall Lane, Doncaster and my Mothers name was Annie and my Fathers name was Timothy, that's all I know apart from the fact that they had two other children, they were devout Methodists and I was adopted when I was about one year old

I am trying to trace any living relatives particularly Brothers or Sisters

I have been trying for years but got nowhere, if anyone can help that would be greatly appreciated

Have you got your original birth cert Trevor? And access to your full adoption file?

I can see the births of the 2 other children on Freebmd - not sure if it helps as you do not say if they are adopted?

Hi Jan

No I don't have this info, I don't think the other kids were adopted though

Was it free bmd on this site?

Thanks for your help

Freebmd is a free site, the best place to look for birth, marriage and death records in England & Wales. From 1837 till about 1955/60.

Google search it, or click on this link:

I have never experienced this myself, but from what i have learned on here there are a few things you should do.
Firstly, I would get access to your adoption file to ascertain all the info you can, and get advice too. Ask social services, they will guide you.
You might consider putting your name on the national adoption register, in case your family are searching for you, or do so in the future.
And think about contacting NORCAP:

Good luck - you have a really good name to look for at least!

Trevor,

You are also registered under the surname Rhodes, as were your siblings. This would seem to imply your parents were not married. Indeed, I don't see a marriage for Timothy Satterley to an Annie.

If you look on FreeBMD, there is only one Timothy showing and he married in 1923 to a Margaret Button. Not seeing any children born to them though.

Have you tried contacting or do you know the other two people that have Timothy in their tree?
