Joanna fathers name Frampton

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Clare Report 15 Jun 2018 09:51

This is a long shot but I am trying to trace Joanna who is the illegitimate daughter of my uncle Stephen James ‘Jim’ Frampton who was born in Northampton in 1937 and has lived in New Zealand for many years. This is all the information I have. Can anyone help?


ArgyllGran Report 15 Jun 2018 11:30

Welcome to the boards, Clare.

Just to be clear - I take it you are in touch with your uncle, and that he has no idea where she might be?

If you're not in touch with him, and if you think it might help if you were, there's an address on the link below for a Steven James Frampton in NZ. (Steven, not Stephen, so maybe not him.)

I don't know how much faith one should put in the website, though, nor how up to date it is!
He's number 22 on the list - if it's him.

You say you have no more information - but I'll ask anyway:

Was her surname Frampton at birth?
Was she adopted or did her mother keep her?
Roughly when was she born?
Was she born before or after your uncle went to NZ? - ie - in NZ or UK?

I'm asking about the surname and possible adoption, because if you Google "Joanna Frampton, New Zealand", there are a few results showing someone of that name who belongs to NZ but has been working with the church in Papua New Guinea.

No idea what age she is, though, or anything else about her.


ArgyllGran Report 15 Jun 2018 11:45

Just in case:

Joanna Margaret Frampton
in the New Zealand, Electoral Rolls, 1853-1981
Name: Joanna Margaret Frampton
Electoral Year: 1981
District: Wellington Central
Region or Province: Wellington

This person was a student in 1981.

There are also several Joanne (as opposed to Joanna) Framptons on the ERs in various years.

But of course Frampton may not be your Joanna's surname.

Hi ArgyllGran
My uncle is still alive but we are estranged and I know that he won't give me any information if I asked. I have only recently discovered that he had a daughter. She would have been born in the UK possibly between 1957 and 1963. I don't know whether she stayed with her birth mother. It seems like a bit of a needle in a haystack but I thought it worth at least a try.

If she was registered in her mums name and he isn't named on the cert then there's no way of finding her I would think

There are 64 Joanna's born from 1955 to 1965. Northampton

Assuming that's where he was still living

If the man is alive, should his private life be discussed on here - GDPR

My thoughts exactly

If the lady is found what is the intention too ???

Non of us know the circumstances so I don't think it's appropriate to pry into personal circumstances

I know her. Have sent you a pm.
