    In the 1841 Census there are 3 John Cookseys of about the right age:

    COOKSEY, John 1829 12 West Bromwich Staffordshire
    COOKSEY, John 1831 10 Kings Norton Staffordshire
    COOKSEY, John 1829 12 Brentford Middlesex

    The first of these is living in Perry Common, Handsworth, Perry Barr as part of a large family of Cookseys. The census ref is: piece 980 Folio 4/24 Page 9.

    The second of these is living in Spon Lane Old Rookery, Harborne, Smethwick and is the only Cooksey in residence. The census ref is: piece 980 Folio 7/50 Page 17.

    The third chap is living in Elm Row, Isleworth as part of a family. The census ref is: piece 658 Folio 8/24 Page 3.

    Here are some possible census references

    1871
    - RG10/820 folio 104 page 32 (Ash, Surrey)
    1881 - RG11/782 folio 111 page 42 (Aldershot, Hampshire)

    I'm having difficulty finding them in 1861. You might expect more children to have been born in the 1850s. Please tell us what birth certificates you have for the children?

    Do you have the 1851 marriage certificate? The 1881 says John was born in Oldbury, and there is a possible baptism in Oldbury on FamilySearch, son of Charles and Hannah. But you would need the marriage certificate to verify the father's name.

    By the way, welcome to the forums!

    Hi Rosie,

    I agree with Kerrywood there are likely to be older siblings born between 1851-58.

    Noting that Samuel married Jane Mansey Church, I can see a William COOKSEY, visitor in the house of widow Mary Mansey 61,Seal, Surrey in 1881 [RG11, 784/27, P4] He is single, 25 (b 1856) in 'Gontdell' Staffs*, and is also a bargeman.

    *could be Gornal?

    Freebmd has Samuel COOKSEY marrying Jane MANSEY in 1879.... not sure where the 'Church' name comes from? You mention that Jane is from Tongham, which is next to Seale, so I think it looks likely that Mary MANSEY is Jane's mother, and William is probably an older brother of Samuels .

    well...look at this!

    What I didn't mention is that also in Mary MANSEY's household, along with a son George 21, is a widowed daughter Mary Ann BURDEN age 33, and her two daughters aged 8 and 5.

    ....and freebmd has William COOKSEY marrying a Mary Ann BURDEN in Jun quarter 1881 in Farnham Reg District, 2a 155.

    So, only just after the census was taken, and it looks like two brothers married two sisters.

    In 1911 Hannah COOKSEY, aged 84, is living with her married daughter Florence Sarah COOKE (wife of Arthur William COOKE), in barracks in Aldershot. There's a marriage in Farnham RD.

    Hannah is recorded as having 9 children, 8 of whom were living at that time.

    John and Hannah COOKSEY baptised Florence Sarah at Ash, Surrey on 22 Feb 1871, along with three of her siblings; Clara Louisa, Emily and Thomas. (C01435-2)

    In 1881, there is a 'Sarah' listed living with John and Hannah, age 15 b Ash, I think this is likely to be Forence Sarah. Also;

    Phebe aged 21, b 'G? Staffs'
    Clara Louise 12, b Ash, Surrey
    Emily 11, b Ash Surrey

    Thomas is not there in 1881, but Rosie knows he was b abt 1862, so he would have been about nine when he was baptised.

    Florence Sarah is definitely an addition to the six children that Rosie knew about, and if William does turn out to be an older brother, that makes 8. One more to go, and which one died... Angelina?

    This is what i have to. I did find Anne Mckechan the GGranddughter of Samuel Cooksey in UK
    she gave me a lot of info on John Cooksey but nothing about Johns Parents.
    Emily Cooksey married William Phillips Thomas younger Sister in 1895.
    Emily had 3 Sons Harol b. 1899, Trevanian b. 1901 Alan b. 1909, she also had 2 Daughters Gladys b. `1905 and Emily.
    Emily died in 1967 at age 94.
    We are trying to find Johns Parents,Hannahs Father was William Timmins b.????
