Hello,

RG13 Piece 215 Folio 102 Page 44
Parish: Hackney
Ecclesiastical District: West Hackney St James
County: London
Registration District: Hackney
Sub-RD: North Hackney
ED: 25
Address: 91 Bayston Road, Hackney
Name Relation Condition *** Age Birth Year Occupation Disability Where Born
COOPER, William Head Married M 40 1861 Drapers Manager Scotland
COOPER, Jane Wife Married F 40 1861 Scotland
COOPER, Jean Daughter Single F 11 1890 Manchester Lancashire
COOPER, Douglas Son Single M 5 1896 Clapham London
COOPER, William Son Single M 4 1897 Clapham London
COOPER, Hector Son Single M 1 1900 Clapton London
Arrived in Australia 1901 - 1911 ???

Can any of them be found in 1911? Possibly the whole family came to Australia and not just Douglas and Hector McD. I don't know if that is McDonald or McDonnel or if it is his mother's maiden name.

Regards,

Dave

Thanks Gibbo. :)

I can't see the family or Hector on that FMP list, but there is a D. Cooper with no date of birth.

It appears the family come out here. His father was here.

WW1 army records for Hector has next of kin - father William Cooper, 112 Joseph St Ashfield.

Still reading the records :biggrin:


Edited.. Douglas has WW1 records as well. Mother noted as Jane Cooper. Her address is noted as Billimarie western lines??. That was hard to read. Father William has a letter in Douglas's file to the army stating that Jane spends most of her time on their son's farm [billimarie??] and that Joseph Street is their town address.

Edited again :biggrin: Billimarie is actually Bon Accord Billimari NSW:rolleyes:
Yeah i know still dont help with a passenger list :rolleyes: Looking for the whole family arriving now :biggrin:

Thanks. That's progress of sorts. :D

So we know Colin also arrived. Southport is not where the others were born. So perhaps they were there to board a vessel. ???

Births Mar 1902
Cooper Colin Ormskirk 8b 880

Looks as though William & Jane married in Scotland.

No luck with the marriage so far. Looks like they were still in Scotland in 1881.

William COOPER & Jane Ann LEDINGHAM 1888 St Nicholas, Aberdeen

I don't know yet if that is the right marriage.

This one fits the one in the marriage but mother in death reg does not match:

Jane Ann Ledingham
Scotland Births and Baptisms, 1564-1950
birth: 12 Mar 1861 PREMNAY,​ABERDEEN,​SCOTLAND
residence: 1861 Aber,​ Scotland
parents: John Ledingham,​ Elspet Hall

Sorry to butt in, as I forum-surf redf)

Elspeth is the Scottish form of Elizabeth, so I think you have them :)
Remember the Scottish accent changes the sound of names :)
