A Mr + Mrs Nicholls had a child, Dorothy Saville Nicholls, supposedly born
in 1893, in England.
Shortly after the birth of the child, Mr + Mrs Nicholls and daughter,
Dorothy, moved to India.
Soon after the move Mr Nicholls died and Mrs Nicholls remarried to a Mr
Mrs Fraser, formerly Nicholls, then died.
Daughter, Dorothy Saville Nicholls was then adopted by John + Emily Wright.
This adoption was arranged by Emily's sister, Mrs Moulton nee Reese. The
adoption is thought to have taken place in Bombay.
I have tried to find the real parents of Dorothy Saville Nicholls in England
but there is no record of a birth of anyone of this name nor of any likely
marriage of her parents.
I have in the past made contact through the list with relations of the
Wrights who have confirmed the adoption but have had no success in finding
Dorothy's birth or her ancestry.
I suppose that it is possible that Dorothy Saville Nicholls was born in
Scotland or Ireland or perhaps in India.
Does anyone have any ideas?
