Looking for some information on the Chatting family from Battersea (Francis Street & 45 Patience Road). Frederick Chatting (b1870) married Florence Picking (b1873) and had a son Albert Chatting who died in the first world war. I have traced the family back to John Chatting (b1788) Wandsworth and his wife Anne Leppard (b1794) Merton. I also know that the family were 16th Century lacemaers from France (Huegonots) and there French surname was (what I can make out) De Cochon or something like that but pronounced in dictionary language (Dee-Ko-Shone), so it could be spelt many ways.
