Nurse child: “A nurse child was a standard term for an infant foster child. It is not necessarily the case that a nurse child was being nursed (breastfed) by a woman in the same household. The nurse child may have been fostered out for a number of reasons, such as the loss of one or both parents, or the parents being unable to look after the child due to reduced circumstances.” (Genes Reunited)
