steve fuller Posted 4 October , 2013 Share Posted 4 October , 2013 Unusual I know but here's a different query to the usual ones ... I have been aware of a story for many years of a young 4 year old girl found by the Bedfordshires around May 1915, and 'adopted'. It had been sitting in my archives gathering virtual dust until a recent spate of queries about her came my way, so I though I'd re-visit it. Will spare you the full story but essentially she was apparently born 1910 ca., and was apparently 'named' Phyllis Impey or Phyllis Trenches by the soldiers who found and cared for her. When the Sgt caring for her was wounded, she returned to Bedford with him but I have found nothing about her after that point. I can find no record of her marriage or death under either name so can anyone who has come across such a story before advise whether she would have been legally adopted, had her name changed / registered legally, etc? Anything recordable at the time, and therefore traceable by me now is what I would like of course! Any thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
