    Although he went by the name Joseph he was actually named Herbert Victor Davies. His illegitimate birth was registered in the Clun, Shropshire registration district in 1887.

    Was Mum Mary?
    1901 Mary is still a servant for Richard and there is another child John Cadwallader age 7 and Margaret age 3.:sceptical: No sign of another lady who could be Mum......

    I'm assuming Mary was his mother but without the birth certificate to prove it who knows!

    Yes and Dora is still with her, but now Mary has gone from being single in 1891 to being a widow in 1901.

    Brilliant Sue, he also says born 'Whitcott' which is where he grew up. So looks like he took the Cadwallader name for a while. I did wonder if Mary was doing more than Richard Cadwallader's washing :D
