Trying to find Coster

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Graham Report 7 Feb 2004 07:25

I am researching the Coster family in Chorleywood and Rickmansworth. I have traced the family back to Benjamin and Mary, mid 18th century, and have more than 300 people on the tree so far. If you have any relatives that come from that area, please contact me and I will see if they fit. I will gladly share details of my tree. Thanks Graham

A bit late in the day perhaps, but have only just started this game!!! My Father was Harry Coster from Croxley Green, 1907-1993, he had four Sisters that all spent their entire lives in Croxley Green. My Grandfather was Harry Coster born 1873, Great-Grandfather William Coster born 1807, Great-Great-Grandfather Solomon Coster, Geat-Great-Great-Grandfather Benjamin Coster . The name then seems to become Costern with William 1686-1742 and then Thomas 1650-1727.
Can you share any info.

Delphine as this thread is 8 years old and Graham hasn't posted since he is unlikely to see your post.

Click on his name and send a message , if he still has the same email address GR will notify him there is a message waiting.
