I have sent you an email. Do you happen to remember a girl named Bettine? She had a daughter named Katrina Jane and gave her up for adoption. Bettine is desperate to find her. She was at St Mary’s in April 1963. Thank you in advance.

live long happy and healthy


Wed Aug 16


you have just read my mind I was just about ready to delete this site from the favorites list as it seems there are no people that are proud of their roots any longer it might be that some of the memories are fading or the fingers can no longer do the walking (a tv adert in uk) I believe the problem is with the internet as words in print are taken at face value so what anyone types may upset a lot of people whereas talking face to face people can read your face and realise that your words should be taken in an entirely different way

ilve long happy and healthy

St. Mary

My mother ended up at St. Mary's, 153 Stamford Hill, London N16 in 1938. It was like a home for unmarried mothers and was run by the nuns. My mother ended up there from Shropshire would you believe and ended up giving birth to my half sister not far away at 102 City Road, London which must have been the local hospital. I have a small baptism certificate from the nuns relating to my half sister and it is headed St. Mary's, Stamford Hill. I went to Google Maps and entered the address of St. Mary's, 153 Stamford Hill, London and it showed a large ornate building which I suspect was St. Mary's. My half sister now lives in New Zealand and has been there for 52 years!

October 1960 - kwr.research@gmail.com

Hi Elizabeth, could I kindly ask you to contact me on the email above.

I am seeking to trace someone who had a daughter who was subsequently adopted. The details match with the information you have posted, I would very much like to discuss this in more detail if at all possible.

Many Thanks

St Mary - kwr.research@gmail.com

Hiya, I am trying to find out a little bit more about St Mary's as I am doing some research on behalf of a friend, as we think her mother may have been born or stayed at St Mary's, we were particularly interested in speaking with anyone who was there in October 1960 - Its a long shot we know, as we do not know if there is definitely a connection but it would be good to speak to anyone who had stayed there and went through the awful process of adoption during that time. We really are struggling to gain more information as we know very very little. Please contact
