Hello Jackie
I took an interest in Christopher Cookson years ago, as my family have the same surname and hail from Northampton from about 1817. Most Cookson's originate from 'up North'; my own Cookson's were from Cheshire in the 1700's at least. I don't think our Cookson families are related at all; mine were poor labourers but I have a little information on your family in my database.
Christopher Cookson was the Vicar of St Mary the Virgin, Dallington, Northampton. He died around 1870. If there is anything I can look for in the Dallington registers just let me know. I could look to see if that is where Christopher is buried.
Thank you for your kind offer. I do have some of the above information, but could you please check for a burial for Christopher and his wife Harriet Charlotte Walker. I know that Christopher died in 1874.

Kind regards

The Rev'd Christopher Cookson BS Vicar aged 50 by T A Walker Off Min;

The Grave Yard closed in 1878, though, so I could not find Christopher's wife's burial record.

Hope this helps.
