Hi All

I am new on here, if i am doing something wrong then apologies it is all new to me.
I am trying to find my aunt to find answers about who i am. I was adopted at five But only found out a few years ago ,i paid a company to find my father which thankfully they did, we met up but he had spent most of his life in prison and to be frank he wasn't a nice bloke and he didn't really want to work on a relationship with me . I was left in limbo,So now i am turning to you all to help me piece my life together so i can get some kind of closure
to my life. I am looking for a lady called Samantha E lewington Maiden Name King she was born in Derbyshire in 1967 . She moved to Southampton and was married to a man called Jim or James they got married in Gretna green in 1987 Her last known address was Thornhill Southampton And i think she may have a son called James as well in his late 20s And this is about as much as i have to go on .

If there is anyone that can help me please i just want answers to who i am and find the true about my past .

Thank you all keep safe .

The 1987 marriage was in Southampton.

Son probably born Southampton

Without paid access, full details aren't available. A search shows the son on Southampton (SO14) ER's 2020

Paid access will give you an address.

Another place to try
but the one entry for Lewington in Southampton doesn't match the ER record

Be sensitive in any approach you make

Hi Dan saw your original post found this......

The person you named was living at the address you post in 2004-2007.

This is from Ancestry Electoral Registers 2004-2007.

Might be worth trying Facebook/Twitter.

Good luck.
