Parents of Edmund Clarkson

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Pauline Report 17 Jul 2010 09:50

I am trying to find the parents of Edmund Clarkson b. 1807 in Poonamallee Tamil Ndu, India. Edmund Clarkson was a Garrison Sergeant Major in the 40th Madras Native Regiment. His first wife was Charlotte b. 1811. They had two children both named Thomas; the first one died and Charlotte died after the birth of the second son. Edmund Clarkson then married Phoebe Wilcock Cooper and I have found three children from that marriage; Edmund Cooper, Esther and Mary Jane.
Can anyone help me find Edmund Clarkson's parents or any further children please?

Thank you.

Hello Pauline,
My name is Geoff Wilcock my paternal Grand Mother was Esther Wilcock (1835 ), her parents were Benjamin Wilcock (1812) and Tamer Clarkson (1807) born in High Hoyland. I believe that she had a sister Mary,
Could this be a Match ?

regards Geoff.
