Common practice in chapels up to early 1970's for young girls to be cast out of the congregation for this "sinful offence". In 19th C and early 20thC common practice for young girls to be send to the workhouse for the birth of the child only in most cases to be let back into the family. As an earlier post stated most such children raised by his grandparents as part of their family and even when girls went on to marry the child stayed with its grandparents
