Not without some idea of his surname or his mums name may help

I would guess that it is extremely unlikely that anyone would be able to help bearing in mind the lack of information provided. Presumably you do know a little more but preferred not to initially disclose it in a public forum.

To increase your chance of getting help and if you do know more then could you release a bit more information such as his birth mothers maiden name without compromising his or his mothers right to privacy.


Reggie Report 16 Apr 2013 16:28

Look for the birth on freebmd.............presumably you know more than you have posted on here

If he was adopted, and you are a relative, add yourself to the national adoption contact register

Welcome to the boards, pat.

The most likely birth appears to be the April-June 1952 quarter in Derby district, not Basford. (Anthony W)


Kenneth Report 16 Apr 2013 19:21

Had sent PM asking for more information, reply states
boy born 1952 mother`s name Lesley lived Basford.


patchem Report 16 Apr 2013 19:39

In that case scrub the Anthony W.

Presumably that was Christian name Lesley?

Did you give information as to how to return to the boards?


patchem Report 16 Apr 2013 19:56

There are births for these males to probably unmarried Mothers in Basford in the Jan/Mar 1952 quarter
Barker,Paul J, Chauntry, Gary J , Graham, Michael J, Lynch, Kellach, Massingham, Robert
But there does not appear to be a Lesley with any of those surnames born in Basford from 1925 to 1938.

With 42 days to register a birth, he could perhaps be in the following June quarter?



patchem Report 16 Apr 2013 22:05

Yes, I had thought of that, then decided to wait for more information.

Crosby Ian, Hallam Christopher R, Panton Frederick P, Shaw John W,
No Lesley with corresponding surname.

a) She (Lesley) does not have to be an unmarried mother
b) She (Lesley) does not have to have been born in Basford

And I have probably missed at least one out.

Odd thing is, Pat looks to have had a brother born that time. Mother isn't Lesley though.



patchem Report 17 Apr 2013 06:50

Yes, I had noticed that, and checked for Mother.
However, that birth was female, surely, or is it Welsh male?

Female, goes on to marry Paul.


Kenneth Report 17 Apr 2013 13:09

Maybe my research is totally wrong, but I believe Pat`s brother
was born in 1937, and because she said relative born 1952
mother`s name Lesley, not knowing the surname, relationship
must be via father possible surname, Fearn , Gillott, Dodds or Whaley,


Reggie Report 17 Apr 2013 13:46

Has Pat actually indicated that 'Lesley' and her child are related to her?


Kenneth Report 17 Apr 2013 14:20

Search starts boy relative, have PM Pat to return to thread, possible
names found by patchem may jog memory.


Reggie Report 17 Apr 2013 16:00

You are right, of course......should have gone to Specsavers.

BUT........if Pat is related to the child's mother , surely she knows the surname, and can look herself for the birth reg'n on freebmd

.............and she should follow the advice given to add herself to the n.a r.


Kenneth Report 17 Apr 2013 17:57

Have had another PM from Pat, clearly states all she knows
is boy name not known born 1952 Basford , mothers name
Lesley, I have a belief this information has only recently been
brought to her attention, Lesley would not actually be related
to Pat, I believe it`s the biological father that`s related to Pat,
but I could be writing total rubbish, lets hope Pat returns to
her thread as I suggested and looks at the names found by
Patchem, I think that`s the only way to go, could be name mother
was known by actually second christen name , we may never

Hello Pat

As you know the childs exact date of bith and his mother's christian name it may be worth contacting....

Nottingham City Register Office....Tel 0115 8415554

and asking, if it would be at all possible, to have a search done for his birth cert...

Records for Basford in 1952 will be held there....

Best of Luck
