Is it possible? A question for the experts. Some years ago, I was told that my maternal grandfather had fathered an illegitimate child by a young woman who was employed to help my grandmother with bringing up their children. I think that this would have been circa 1910 or perhaps a couple of years later.With no particular interest in finding out any details at the time, it is only lately I have given any thought to it. My grandparents had 6 children, their only boy dying aged 18 months in hospital. The illegitimate child was a boy, I was told. I have no name for the young woman. She is not recorded on the household census in 1911. The child, being illegitimate, may not have been registered with his father's name. The only sister to my mother (who died in 1986) still alive is in her 90's and was not born until 1920. She may not even know about the child and I have no wish to distress her at her advanced age. I think it is a brick wall but on the off chance, I am asking if anyone knows of any resources I can access?
