Tracing Edwardian triplets, thoughts on BMDs from around the globe, and memories of ‘Dad’

Do you recognise Kathleen?

I have been researching my family tree for a number of years and have always been intrigued by the mystery that surrounds my great-grandmother – Kathleen Mary Jerrard, born 26 December 1906. We have always known that Kathleen was adopted by Frederick and Ellen Jerrard and I was interested to see on the 1911 Census that she appeared alongside Frederick and Ellen’s family and was actually listed as their niece.

I have searched in vain for her birth certificate but have never been able to find one. While searching recently I came across the births listed for Beatrice Annie Jerrard and her twin Elsie Mary Jerrard who were also born in the same area on the same day as my great-grandmother. When I then looked into this further I found that the mother of Elsie and Beatrice (Elizabeth Jerrard, née Young) was actually the sister of Ellen Jerrard (née Young) who had taken in and brought up Kathleen.
