View Full Version : John Cope Gould c1861 - Lighterman

15-05-2005, 2:15 PM
I am looking for the Death of John Cope Gould born c1861 in Brentford. He drowned after falling off a barge as he was a Lighterman. But I don't know when .

I have him in the 1861, 1871 and 1901 census, so he died after that. I also have his Apprentice records.

He was married to Francis Elizabeth Webb, I can't find the marriage either. She remarried after he died.

His Father was also John Gould married to a Sarah ?

There is a death of a John Cope Gould on FREEBMD but he is only 5 years old, probably a member of the Family somewhere, but not the John I am looking for.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Valium

Thank you for answering my message.

I have since found out that John Cope Gould died in 1911, he was found drowned but they didn't know how he came to be in the water.

Oh and yes that was the right family.
