Many thanks everyone for your replies, it's most appreciated.

So it looks like it was over the age of 14, the minimum legal age (with parental consent) but under the age of 18, below which was classed as a minor.

That's brilliant and really helps me to put context to the story and also narrow down my search for birth and death records.

Thanks again,

Rachel :oD
