John Cook b 1843


Valued Member
Bendigo, Victoria
I'm looking for descendants & spouse of a John Cook born in Sheet, Hampshire on 31 Dec 1843. He was the son of Daniel Cook and Sally Philps (Phelps). I understand he was on the 1851 census with his father - he was aged 7. He wasn't with his father from other censuses.

If it is the same John Cook he appears in Australia at a later date. This John had at least one son Frank. This John was said to have been born in Manchester, but I'm wondering if Manchester and Hampshire looked the same on a census sheet. This John worked in the railways here (South Australia) and died 12 January 1912. Some of my relatives went to the funeral, so he must be related in some way.
