LesleyC Report 18 May 2009 13:48

Did we ever establish what the Mother of Eleanor, maiden name was.


Debbie K

Debbie K Report 18 May 2009 13:53

yes her name was ellen roberts


LesleyC Report 18 May 2009 14:05

Can't think what else to do with this family - the only birth that seems to be correct is Richard W (Junior) the rest just don't really appear.


Debbie K

Debbie K Report 18 May 2009 14:09

i totally agree what i am going to do is to get james cooley birth cert in I Wight and see if it is the same family


LesleyC Report 18 May 2009 14:13

Hi Debbie

Isle of Wight site is a good site - don't bother getting the cert as mothers maiden name is wrong

Name = COOLEY, James Year = 1887

Name Birth
Year Other Surname(s) District Reference
1 COOLEY, James 1887 MEANING Newport N41/E178
