Only just went back to check this.It's a fascinating story! I did wonder why none of the Hampson family took her in and I suppose there must have been some kind of rift, but they (the Hampsons) had several deaths in mid 1851 and possibly a sickly toddler was just too much.
One thought re the mysteriously disappearing Thomas: could he have left the country? Two brothers of my second grt grandfather went off to Australia from Yorkshire in mid 1852 to seek their fortunes.Needless to say neither found gold or any kind of fortune) and one returned after about a decade.
