Adolf Hitler’s Liverpudlian half-brother in the 1911 census

lots of different styles of
handwriting, so we can
assume that the boarders in the house each filled in their
own details. We believe therefore that Alois completed his
family’s details, especially when we look at his son William’s
entry. Above ‘boarder’, which has been crossed out and re-
written underneath, Alois has referred to William as ‘sohn’, the
German word for ‘son’:
Anton. Bridget has also recorded a different name: Cissie

Tap – let alone understanding MH730, do we have the first idea who Hitler really was? His father Alois, although illegitimate, had lots of money – enough to travel around, gamble and hire pretty ladies. He also had connections, enabling him to get a job with Lyons, at the place he wished to be. Whoever his connections were, his undisclosed father must be the likely source of his funds.
His mother was Maria Schicklgruber, a maid with a rich family in Vienna, who hosted the Rothschilds from London. Some believe it was Lionel Rothschild, Britain’s first Jewish MP, and probably half brother to Queen Victoria who fathered Alois with Maria. Secret service sources are quoted as saying that Nathan Mayer Rothschild was Victoria’s real father.
It is very possible that Adolf Hitler had British relatives. It is possible that those relatives were 19th Century Rothschilds, and their descendants, the current British Royal family. It’s all about the bloodlines. They cover their tracks, but leave little clues for us to wonder about.
