The babies of Holnicote House

Deborah Prior

2021

Deborah Prior was one of 1000s of mixed-race children born in the United Kingdom after the Second World War. Because of social stigma, many of those children were separated from their parents. Deborah was raised in Holnicote House from when she was a 2 week old baby until she was 5. She was then adopted. Deborah did not meet her birth mother until she was 50.
