      Original post

      Given up for adoption, her name was changed to Ingrid Pedersen. John never knew about her and she only found out Julia Lennon was her biological mother when she needed her birth certificate in 1966 when she was getting married. She came across her adoption papers as well. Vernon "Taffy" Williams was her biological father. 

        Wow!  Another one.  That makes 3.  Too bad John didn't know.

          He also has 2 half-brothers from Alf's marriage to Pauline Jones (born 1948) in 1968: David Henry, born Feb. 26, 1969 and Robin Francis, born Oct. 22, 1973.

          This is David at various ages + Alf Lennon. And with Yoko! 

           

           

            That's not David with Yoko, it's the actor who played John in nowhere boy, Aaron johnson.

             

            plus ingrid said John did know Julia had a baby given up for adoption, he spent a lot of money searching for her but came up blank - some say he didn't know, some say he did. IIRC his sister's Julia and Jackie were pretty upset she went public and met yoko rather than meet privately with them.

              Okay, he looked a lot like David! I was just posting what someone else had posted. 

              Do you mean to say John found out about her much later?

                Yeah I didn't mean he knew as a kid, I meant I'd read he knew later in life - but how true that is I don't know. Julia only found out in the 80s but surely if John did know he'd have told them. There's many versions out there, I don't think we'll really know now John is not here.

                  If I ever see Julia again (had to cancel U.K. trip for 2nd time - will rebook for Aug. 2022!) and it seems okay, I might ask her. We have talked 3 times: in Atlanta, GA, in Louisville, KY and in Liverpool, England (all in 2016: March, May & August!) 

                    I met Julia twice, the first was at the convention strawberry field garden fete in 05 and her words to me were "wrong t shirt" as I was wearing a Paul tour t but my sister was wearing a strawberry field one. I felt a right idiot, but still love that 03 Paul shirt!

                      😂 My friend I think got a Strawberry Field t-shirt when she bought one of the bricks from the orphanage they tore down. We try to coordinate stuff like that. When I went to the Casbah I think I wore the 2016 Beatleweek t-shirt that I had just bought at the Cavern! I do have 2 John different Imagine shirts. One arrived this year in the mail and I have no idea how - I didn't order it! Maybe it was a special extra gift for buying the Imagine deluxe set ?
