Looking for Colin I Trustum,.born Romford, Esses in 1954, son of Frank Trustum who married Doris Ralph. Colin may have been adopted and taken to australia. Anyone know of him.

If you are related, add yourself to the national adoption contact register

Have you looked for his birth name on here in 'search all trees'?


Reggie Report 11 Mar 2013 16:49

I see that the father died in 1962.................

I think you need to ascertain for certain wether he was or wasn't adopted. Send for his birth cert - if he was it should say so.

Doris remarried after Frank died. Are your sure Colin didn't stay with her and take the surname Brown?



Ray Report 25 May 2013 23:34

Doris remarried and moved to Olney. Doris and Fred are now deceased. Colin moved to Melbourne Australia at the age of 16.

Who's asking?
