Charles James COOKE
christening: 31 October 1832 ST SEPULCHRE, LONDON
parents: George Cooke, Sarah

Deaths Dec 1908
COOKE Charles James 76 W. Derby 8b 169

Charles married Mary Ann BERRY or Mary Ann WINTER depending which tree you look at.

Mary born about 1846 according to one tree as WINTER and as BERRY with mother's maiden name was WINTER on another tree.

Charles & Mary married - where and when ? Victoria ???

One tree has these details for a son:

Richard Switson COOKE b. 1887 Vic - parents Charles James COOKE & Mary Ann BERRY

If those details are correct then how did he get the middle name Switson ?
Is the registration actually under SWITSON or BERRY with father unknown?

Another son of Mary Ann:

David Arthur SWITSON/BERRY b. 1889 or 1890 Vic. - father unknown

Marriage 1909 Vic. for Richard Charles SWITSON & Mary Ann COOKE ???

They waited until Charles died.

One tree has Mary's death in 1979 but that can't be correct.

Mary Ann died in Victoria after 1890 either as COOKE or SWITSON or as MURRAY. ???

Is Murray an error for Berry?

Richard Charles SWITSON died in 1936 Vic.

Help needed please to sort this. :)
