Welcome to Genes and the Boards.

Your message is a bit confusing. Are you not a child of this marriage in which case you would know if you were brought up by your grandparents.

An indication of when the marriage broke up would help form a timeline.

Thanks for coming back so quickly.

Scotland is key! One only only access Scottish records on Scotlands People. It would seem that your mother returned to using her maiden name.

By using the website freebmd.org.uk (England & Wales) you would be able to find the births you mentioned. You may find their marriages/deaths there or you may need to use the records on one of the big companies

By obtaining Hughs marriage certificate you should be able to find the names of his parents and then using that information you may just track down your half siblings.

I'm puzzled

You refer to your 'birth mother' and your immediate adoption, yet you give your surname as 'Brolly/Brolley'

Were you adopted by a couple named Brolly/Brolley?

Helpers have referred to freebmd...............here's the link

David may have been originally registered in his mothers married name and then she reverted to her maiden name when she signed the adoption papers.

That is what I took from Davids post yesterday at 15.58.
