Question by lorlaine

Thomas Wallace's brother was Charles James Wallace and his mother was Mary Jane Wallace nee Henderson. James Wallace was Lilydale Shire President.
I cannot find any trace of Frederick Lappin and do no know whether he took the Wallace surname when his mother married Thomas Wallace as Frederick would have only been about 18 months old. I have a suspicion that someone along the way has the story a little mixed up as Annie Lappin had a son John Thomas Lappin in 1882 in Goulbourn NSW. John Thomas Lappin was my grandfather and on his Marriage Certificate he has named his Grandparents, Bernard and Emily Lappin as his parents and I don't think he knew any different. For this reason I am wondering if John lived with his mother for a while and was then handed over to his grandparents.The story I heard was Frederick lived with Annie and Thomas and was kicked out by Thomas at a young age but maybe it was John. I am hoping that someone will know of Frederick and if in fact he really existed as I have a photo of my Great Great Grandmother Annie with a boy about 12 years and that boy is the image of my brother when he was that age and my now 12 year old grandson so I believe that the boy in the photo is John. I am sure there would be many people out there who could help me as the Wallace's were a well known family in that area.

Thank you so much this all works in although Annie and Thomas didn't get married until 1890 so the question is did Thomas adopt him. I am told by a third cousin whose Grandmother was Alice, Annie and Thomas' daughter that Annie was raped by a Policeman resulting in her pregnancy with Frederick. I couldn't even get a Birth Certificate for him. Unfortunately I am not on Ancestry and if you are happy to share what information you have on the KNOLL-JACKELL I would be most grateful and if you are following this tree and need any information on the family I will give you what I have
Kind Regards Lorlaine

From the book 'Sex and suffering: women's health and a women's hospital', Janet McCalman, 1999

"The houses and private hospitals run by self-trained midwives, especially those who offered 'special services', were frequently filthy, with patients sharing beds, befouled bed linen, close, damp rooms and contaminated cloths and dressings. Sefton House, just up the road from the Women's Hospital in Madeline Street, was found in 1888 to have a bathroom which was 'very dirty; it is used as a dog kennel' and the cellar floor was inches deep in foul water."
There was also another Annie Lappin who died in West Melbourne in 1897 she was 28 and the daughter of William Lappin and Catherine O'Gorman. She never married.
