David Allen

We are hoping to find a David Allen who was born in 1943 in Oxford. Can anyone help us?

Since asking for any information about David Allen in August, we have found out a bit more information about him. David Allen was born to my wife's mother when she was about 16, 17 or 18 years old and her name was Henrietta Mary Allen. David was born in 1943 in Oxford. It would be great if anyone could help about his whereabouts or perhaps his family. Thank you all for your help in this matter. Thank you. :-) :-)

Not with such limited info. I,m afraid

What else do you know?

How are you connected?

Have you done any research?

His birth will be on freebmd.................

Is he the one with MMN Allen?


Colin Report 1 Aug 2013 08:51

My mother's initial were HMA at the time of David's birth unless, of course, she disguised herself, which would make it harder. I assume that is what you are asking me. Thank you.


Reggie Report 1 Aug 2013 09:08

No................not exactly

MMN = mother's maiden name.

In view of your PM..........suggest you add yourself to the national adoption contact register, and hope that David has also done so


Colin Report 1 Aug 2013 09:15

Thank you once again Reggie. We will get the hang of all this. Yes, David's mother's maiden name was Allen. ( We feel we must point out to you that we are doing this on behalf of my wife). Thank you also for your advice about the Adoption Contact Register. We shall look into this. Thank you.

Two people possibly have this person in their family tree here on GR.

Go to Search at top right hand of the page and click on Search all trees, then put his information into the boxes.

You can, if the people still have the same e-mail address as when they registered with GR, make contact.

The name of one tree owner is David.

Best of luck.
