1745 in Sussex?

I am always interested in the Fillary name - after all I married into the family..... I have traced a Foyce Fillary from 1745 married to Sarah, and although I do not have his birth place all of the children were born in Arundel, Sussex, UK. This first chap is my husband's G/G/G/G/grandfather. The Foyce name crops up again as Thomas FOICE Fillary b1840 in Middlesex, London, UK., a G/grandson of the first Foyce. Many of these Fillarys were butchers - since 1830's, the first having moved to London and married there and all the children born in London. Have not been able to link my Fillarys to other trees and have been told by an early "investigator" that he has never come across our branch of Fillarys in all his years of searching. The question is - has anyone else? Rosalee

Mystery Man!

I am working on the ARBURY name and my ancestors are Devon based (UK)- my earliest is my Gt/gt/gt/grandfather Robert,b.abt 1766 (could be a few years earlier). He worked in Otterton, Devon, was married, in Otterton, in 1786 to a lady called Elizabeth Barnes b1868 and have been able to follow his 11 children, of which Thomas b1799 was my Gt/gtGrandfather who married Louisa White b1810 married 1833. They had 10 children and my Gt/grandfather was Robert b1849 (AKA Robin on some records) wife Susan Robins b1849. The mystery for me is the first Robert - as no-one seems to know from where he came. Guessing not so far but? - he was an agricultural labourer and have learnt that he was the first Arbury in Otterton! On-line Parish Clerks do not have him before his arrival there..........

If anyone recognises this "line" I would be very pleased to hear from them.

Birth certificates for the adopted

I am trying to find out what happens when a child is taken in by relatives and adopted; concerning the birth certificates. Are they reissued with the adoptive parents shown as birth parents?

I understand that these children cannot then inherit from original parents as they are deemed to have been "born" to the adoptive parents. (Thank the programme Heir Hunters for that little gem) I have a hand written tree from an uncle which gives a different father to several children - other people have his sister and husband as the parents. No social benefits then so I know that relatives did take on children - even my g/mother was raised by her maternal grandmother. Hopefully - Rosalee
