I am looking for a Michael Wright who was adopted and his mothers maiden was Heather June Wright if anyone can help please. :-)

Hi Jane and welcome to the boards

If you are a birth relative, or posting on behalf of one, add your (their) names to the adoption contact register

You could search all trees on this site to see if anyone has Michael or his mother listed on their trees and send them a message. Although technically we aren't supposed to add names of living people without their permission, make sure that they are on your own tree.

Struggling to find a Michael Wright, mmn Wright birth in Ilford. If he had a middle initial it might help your future searches along with an accurate yob or full dob if you were to purchase the certificate

How sure are you of his pob and name?


FAIRTHORN Report 18 Aug 2013 12:38

Name: Heather J Wright
Date of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec 1947
Registration District: Ilford
Inferred County: Essex

If the above is correct so we are prior Oct 1947 for Michael

remarriage to become poster's surname


JANE Report 18 Aug 2013 12:55

Hi thanks for getting back to me yes I have traced that Heather was previously married 1947 to Doorey does this match you also ?
The only details I have was that she had a son Michael who was given up for adoption have I got the correct person here ?


FAIRTHORN Report 18 Aug 2013 13:06

As Heather was born in WEST HAM are you sure of Ilford for the birth ?



JANE Report 18 Aug 2013 13:16

I am not sure that Iford was where Michael was born I know Heather was born in Leyton West Ham and then went to Northumberland so I have been tracing all the births in both areas, Do you know anything about Heather ?


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 18 Aug 2013 13:16

Jane - the 1947 marriage which Fairthorn posted was to a Mr Doorey.

Like Fairthorn is wondering, could Heather have been sent out of the area when her pregnancy began to show?


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 18 Aug 2013 13:19

Fairthorn and unless they say otherwise, anyone else who posts on the thread have no knowledge of the people involved.

All we are doing is searching the various available sites, some of which you may not subscribe to, and drawing conclusions.

Added - unless she had family ties to Northumberland prior to her marriages, its rather far to have been sent to give birth!


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 18 Aug 2013 13:23

:-D :-D

Mind you, wasn't there a Wright/Wright marriage about that time?


JANE Report 18 Aug 2013 13:29

Yes I understand that Heather had maybe moved out of the Ilford area to have Michael when she seperated from Mr Doorey its so frustrating I do not have the correct date of birth for Michael. Thanks for your help I am desperatly trying to trace Michael.


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 18 Aug 2013 13:35

It would be worth buying the certificate which Fairthorn posted if only to confirm, from

The details are on Freebmd on this link

There is a Michael Doorey born in 1950 in the north of England??

There are 3 Doorey/Wright births showing Cambridge, Northumberland and Richmond only one marriage


JANE Report 18 Aug 2013 14:05

Thanks Jax I have searched the marriage all my traces lead to Heather and none to Michael !! I have looked at Birth certificates to check birth mothers with maiden names as Wright.


jax Report 18 Aug 2013 14:10
