Subject: [Lon] CHANGE OF SURNAMES
Date: Fri, 20 Dec 2002 20:37:01 -0000
Was it legal for a person to change their surname in the early 1900s, without the benefit of remarriage?
The case I have is a child being registered with the surname of the current husband of the mother.
Could he then live, marry, have children and die, using the surname of another man,(who his mother did not marry,) legally?
Would it have involved a 'change of name by deed-pole?
If so, is there any way of checking?
