A question out of 'left field' in the US vernacular, also very hard to put into a sensible sentence or query as my current state of awkwardity is messing with my deeper thought & probing processes. If a person is being paid maintenance money for a child by a person not her husband, is there anyway to tell when that child was born? A notice appeared of the child's father being £6 in arrears & ordered to catch up & continue payments of 10 shillings per week in 1924. Did payment stop at child's age of 16 or upon woman's marriage in those times? Still obsessing over missing person & grasping at all straws & twigs. Hoping child's birth will help to find the mother. Only found one newspaper mention on FMP & this morning Ancestry is telling me all pages are Temporarily unavailable. I do hope this has come over sensibly.
