Thread Name: Help: What does 'asthore' mean?
Subject: RE: Help: What does 'asthore' mean?
I fixed the link in my original posting. Noreen, I'd seen it as a surname in my search on google. Don't know the history of that, though, just found it interesting.

Here's a bit more as an example of what I found, from someone's posted family tree (emphasis is mine):

Raymond1 Kaines (#175) birth date unknown.

He married Joan Asthore Higgins. (Joan Asthore Higgins is #174.) Joan was born in Wagga Wagga, NSW Australia July 26, 1908. Joan was the daughter of Percy Reginald Higgins and Florence Isobella Barnes. Joan died Nov 5, 1996 in Sydney, Australia, at 88 years of age.

Also, the Kabalarians, in Canada, have it listed as Girl's Name or Boy's Name, for what it is worth.
