    I've not had much luck with newspapers online post 1950. Bit hit and miss - thinks it's still quite recent; accessing info for living people etc.

    I'm sure it would have been around 1959. Reason for that is that's when the daughter's name was changed from Remfry to Carroll.

    nothing stands out immediately - do you suspect a rough time for this?

    I don't know if there are records anywhere, but I was searching for someone on here and I found an announcement in the papers. I really can't remember if I looked in the papers for Remfry, I think I did for carroll though.

    a long absence by myself been out the country, but now back home, and picking up the mystery once again.

    In the paperwork I have of Doris there is a post office bank book, under her name there is a reference number the surname Remfry is crossed out and Carroll is written in place. Is there anywhere where you can check to see if her name was changed via deed poll etc.

    I tend to believe Gerald was born in Boston to Elizabeth she was unmarried returned to Ireland to her catholic family and took on the name of Elizabeth Carroll. I'm sure her sisters in Boston would have stuck to her side of the story if ever questioned by her parents. Her only lie being she married Geralds father when in USA. Perhaps his father did die, that's something I've still to look at. At the end of the day it still seems the DNA is leading to Doris side being untrue regarding Gerald being the biological father of her chid. Could look it it differently as he was the father to her as he supported her and her chid.

    I'm not convinced the Sadie Carroll is the right track. There is no Gerald on the UK birth register that matches his date of birth and believe me I've tried. the only match I've ever seen is the Condon one Vera found.

    The address with the Kinsella name is enough for me also to say we are right along with what we have found. We have tracked and traced the families movements.

    Elizabeth going as a Carroll until she married isn't news to me Doris did the same went as a Mrs Carroll so did she get the idea from Elizabeth, who knows.
    The Will is for Sarah Carroll who died in August 1932 in Middlesex, not the one in Manchester.

    Don't know if this has been posted already - public tree on ancestry which gives Sarah Kinsella's birth as 1902 in Roscommon, Ireland.

    I am sure it's was mentioned on here before that Sadie is a nickname for Sarah, google has confirmed that.

    There is a Sarah Kinsella, in Liverpool, maybe her

    will have a look later.

    LJ 1930 Bucklow, Cheshire
    RG 1923 Bucklow, Cheshire
    RJ 1927 Bucklow, Cheshire

    and here they are here, but no Sadie, so assume that she may have died, there is a Sarah Carroll death

    I agree with Carolyn and yourself Sookie likely to be no connection with the Sadie Kinsella

    However I don't feel hearsay can be ignored, just eliminated so where did Millie (Gerald's 2nd wife) get info from I wonder.

    Hopefully 1921 online soon.

    I did follow that route when I first started and Sadie disappeared, and Joseph Carroll was married to someone else in the 1939 census. But I will have another dig around for her. But I don't think there is any connection.

    Gerald marriage records have fathers name Gerald Carroll.

    The 1921 census cant come out quick enough.

    I don't know what to think but how about Elizabeth Condon with young Gerald arrived in Liverpool 1919.

    ​​​​​She then went on in 1923 to marry in Bucklow, Cheshire, using the name Sadie Kinsella, a Joseph Carroll. So Joseph Carroll would be the stepfather of young Gerald b 1918 Boston.

    That marriage broke down. Elizabeth Carroll (previously Sadie Carroll nee Kinsella) then left Bucklow for London where in ? 1937 she married John Kinsella.

    Or Gerald on maturity ended up in Croydon and Elizabeth aka Sadie. Not sure what became of her.

    The 2nd mc of Gerald may reveal another father albeit step. EDIT or maybe the mc of Sadie Kinsella and Joseph Carroll 1923

    Millie knew Gerald's mother but I am sure she said her name was Sadie Kinsella. I found a marriage in a Register office in Bucklow, Cheshire. She married a Joseph Carroll and I wonder if this was actually Gerald's stepfather and given his surname as he was illegitimate. They were living in Wilmslow. Was the whole story about Boston and the USA a fabrication as I have never found a Gerald Carroll there. Sadie's father was John Kinsella, a gamekeeper. Even more confusion!

    This is the email I got the other day. Millie was Geralds 2nd wife.

    They have nothing at all, just their opinion.
