View Full Version : COOPER and LUCAS in Islington

02-12-2004, 3:12 PM
I have photos of Thomas LUCAS and his wife Louisa COOPER and have found them in the census, married and living in Islington 1861, '71, '81, '91 and (she, widowed) 1901. I have his death cert and have also found 12 of their reputed 17 children - first known born 1858, but I can find NO marriage, nor any positive sighting of either of them pre-1858. With the usual inconcensusities, I cannot be certain of their origins, but they are within the following probalities: Thomas (Henry?) LUCAS, born 1817 to 1825, Llangurig, Montgomeryshire. Louisa (Frances?) COOPER born 1839 -41 Ryde Isle of Wight or, possibly, Portsmouth (cannot find her in PRO microfiches, either). I am hoping that they married in Islington (possibly St Mary's).
Has anyone any info or idea how I should proceed with my search?
