Hi Johnny,

Cant find marriage as of yet. Have any other info about your father, when born and place, parents names and occupation, hopefully this will help to find him on the census.

Hi Johnny,

I cant find their marriage either nor can I find them on the 1901 census. Found Thomas's death and his age given makes him born abt 1886 also found Margarets death (under the surname Cowdery) making her born abt 1878.
Thomas's age dosnt seem to tie up as I cant seem to find one that matches year of birth. Found a Thomas (born abt 1881) on the 1891 census father Andrew born Hanworth Middx, mother Phoebe born Hampton Middx with other children one is called Fritz does this sound familar?. There is a birth for a Annie Phoebe Cowdery birth reg 1902 Sept 1/4 1902 Wandsworth, could this be their daughter. Did find some more births , James A Cowdery 1911 June 1/4 dist Wandsworth, Thomas William A Cowdery 1904 Mar 1/4 dist Wandsworth., Edith Cowdery 1906 Sept 1/4 dist Wandsworth.

I found that the age did,nt add up and I am certain that his birth was 1881,his fathers name was Andrew and you are right about Fritz,he was living with his parents when Annie Phoebe was born in 1902 at 15 Summerly st ,Wandsworth.he was known to us as Thomas Alfred Cowdery <alf>on his childrens birth certificates he was named Thomas,on mine and my sisters and brothers it was ThomasAlfred,in 1881 census he had a brother named Alfred,I was wondering ,if he took his brothers name after he was killed or some thing,there was an Alfred living in Wandsworth in the 1901 census,the other girls and a son wereborn in ,Winifred in 1905 in Wokingham,Alfred George 1907 in Crealock Street Wandsworth,and there was Renie who I have,nt had her perticulaars yet ,hope this is of help,ty for your asistance,

Hi,

Running out of steam on this one. Did find this chap on the 1901 census. Thomas Cowderoy boarder age 22 born Lambeth occ general dealer (shop).
The family he is boarding with is named Bush the head of household is his employer. There is also another Thomas Cowderoy inmate born Lambeth so the 2 Thomas's could be father and son?.

Sorry if this is totally irrelevant, but I have just registered and find this very odd connection.

My family are Cowdery - originally Hampshire and London - and we married into Copeland in the sixties. Around 1900 I can trace most of my grandfather's brothers and sisters - William Lamsley/Sydney Francis/Mary Elizabeth/Edith/Eleanore Beatrice - are any of these your Cowderys?
