1924. Thomas & Charlotte began looking after Agda M Osmond

She was cared for from a baby, then adopted, legally ,~1929, becoming known as Mame Pitchford. When this 1924 arrangement was reached, Henry Lewis Osmond was still living with May Brownlee- so it suited all sides . When Henry run into financial difficulties/quarelled with May, around 1927, he left May Brownwood and presumably the Brownlees and the Pitchfords felt miffed! , and the formal adoption followed in 1930, just days before Agda's birth mother married Reg Tulloh-Hatchett- and might thus have been able to reclaim her daughter, having a suitable home for her

1958. Agda's mother by adoption, Charlotte Pitchford did not die until 1958, Middlesborough, aged 81.

When did Thomas die?? Maybe 1940 Cleveland or 1956 Durham central - both given as born 1874 . Or 1937 from an Ancestry tree -gedcomjan12- but this not borne out on Bmd
