Family Tree: Lilian Joyce Field

Lilian Joyce Field is my aunt on my father’s side. We knew her as “Joyce”. I’ve never met her and I know very little about her, except she grew up in Barnardos care as did my father. I don’t know if she married or if she has children.

But I want to know.

Joyce was about 16 years of age in the photo, which was taken around 1950. I know it’s a long time ago and she will have changed a lot in that time, but I’m hoping someone will come across this post at some time in the future and will recognise her. If that happens, please contact me. I would love to receive information on Joyce’s descendants as it would make my family tree complete.

In January 2017, I made contact with Joyce’s family. Her children seem to know so little about their mother’s history. They said she never spoke about it much. I could fill in some of the blanks for them, but the mysteries still remain. Especially in regards to the child she had in about 1949. Dad told me about the child, but couldn’t tell me if it was a boy or a girl. Joyce’s family found paperwork after her death that suggested a child. They believe it was a girl, but are not 100% sure. Who was that child? If you know, I’d love to hear from you.
