To Jayne Cooper,

I am replying to your query for a lost person, which I saw on the Britain-Burma Society's Lost Relatives web page (http://shwepla.net/Misspers.mv). You said:

I am searching for my birth mother/half-sister/Uncle/Aunt/Father who I believe may still be living somewhere in the UK. My mother, Mary Charlotte Johnson was born in India in 1947. Her mother was Anglo-Indian and her father was Burmese and believed to be an artist. She came to the UK around 1966 from Rangoon with the Sisters of the Good Shepherd for study purposes but apparently she didn't study and started working in the records department of a factory. She also converted to become a Roman Catholic. She was around 4 ft 10 and described as pretty.

My half-sister was born on 12/8/67 - her father was still living in Burma at the time and my mother was unmarried. When I was born on 1/12/69 my mother was living in London (2 Acacia Road, Norbury) and she had been working for a doctor as a copy typist. She often went out in South Croydon in the evenings where she met my father and at the time I had an Aunt and Uncle also living in London. The Aunt was a nurse at Harefield Hospital Middlesex and the Uncle was working in a factory. My father's name was "Bob". It is thought that he was from Abbiscombe and worked as a diver. He was also Scottish.

My mother decided to give me up for adoption because she was living in a small room at the above address and didn't feel that she could cope with 2 small children. I initially went to a foster home in Thornton Heath and then was adopted in 1970. My mother's last known address was 26 Birdhurst Road, South Croydon. If anyone knows of her whereabouts or the whereabouts of my other family members then please e-mail me.

Maybe I can help a bit.
