Thank you everyone who has given me help or advice on finding my Dad, unfortunately he passed away in 2007 :(

As he divorced over 20 years ago, could the marriage in 1999. Mansfield, also be him?
If so, with a Barbara J on 192.com?

(Both on 2002 Sutton in Ashfield)

There were a Paul N and Barbara J in Brechin, Angus, in 2007, (years way out, error?) but she appears on her own in later years.
She is in facebook.

Your 'mother's own adoption' papers won't tell you any more than your mother can.

This man was obviously not called Paul N Boden when he was born

patchem

patchem Report 30 Dec 2012 15:51

There is also a marriage in 1999 in Mansfield (Barbara J)
The 1984 is Irma V.
You might need to apply for your Mother's marriage certificate, and those of the other 2 marriages, to check if either is your Father.

There are also Paul N Boden's in Scotland on 192.com

Added:
Irma appears to be Irma Boden-Lewis on 192.com.

There is a possible re-marriage in 1984 - and this lady is now in Mansfield on 192.com along with her daughter. I'll pm her details but stress this may not be his second wife.

My mum remarried my step dad who adopted me, which means my Mum also had to adopt me. Also means Paul lost all rights into contacting me :(

After asking more questions, Paul wasnt Lilys natural son :(

There are NO Boden/Brocklesby births on Ancestry...........

You may have to consider that Paul was not Lily's natural child

You need to buy the cert of his marriage to your mother

I find it odd that you refer to speaking to your 'mum', as though she is Paul's ex-wife.............yet say that you were adopted

There is no Boden/Brocklesby birth showing....
Do you know when and where Leonard died?

Well, there is no Paul N. Boden birth anywhere in England/Wales as far as I can see (apart from 1963 and I am sure it isn't that one!). Hopefully your adoption records will hold some more clues.
Good luck - come back anytime if you want to.

I shall try 192.com thank you. Ive no access to their marriage certificate but have got my adoption papers on there way. I presume he was born in Lincoln, I know thats where his Mum is buried. thank you :)

brummiejan Report 29 Dec 2012 23:55

It's quite an unusual name - have you tried 192.com? There are a few on there.
Have you got access to your parents' marriage cert? It might help to pin down his birthplace and his parents' names.

Presumably you have looked for him using 192.com?

I cannot see his birth on ancestry bmd - do you know where it was?

Thank-you

My Mum and Dad divorced but mum has no address or anyway of helping me contacting him. Yes my mums maiden name was Fyfe.

I take it your mother's maiden name was Fyfe?
