Any information on a Donald Smith, mother Mary Smith, father unknown, born 9th. march 1926, at Arbour Hill, Patrick Bromton,
Bedale, on Donald Smith birth cert. it states at the end of birth cert. he was adopted, do not know by who,?? Inlater years Donalds name was changed to Donald Smith Sheffield,dont know why,
or if it was his adopted folks name??
Arbour Hill was, or is, part of the Hornby castle estate, I dont
know if the mother, Mary Smith, worked at Arbour Hill, may be as a maid,?? only on Donalds birth cert. her occupation was House Duties,?? or was it a unmarried mothers home?? dont know.
Donald Smith was a very dark person, maybe Italian,
It was often said he was part romany gipsy, fiction maybe, but
he was of a very dark colour. and had a very strong yorkshire accent, i belived he lived and worked in and about the Leeds area
Otley, and Ilkly moor was spoken of a lot,
any persons who may have known of Mary Smith, her family, or of her son, Donald Smith, i would love to hear from them, so it would be great to fill the last bit of the family tree in.
