Hi All,

Looking for information on John William Cooke, his wife Margaret May nee Ainscough and daughter Doris. Believe 2 other kids born in SA. Also John's sister Mary died 1955 Parow.

Cheers, Peter

Have you obtained a copy of his estate file  ?
MOOC   6/9/24273   2174/57   COOKE, JOHN WILLIAM. ESTATE PAPERS.  1957 1957
MOOC   6/9/16804   451/50   COOKE, MARGARET MAY. NEE AINSCOUGH. ESTATE PAPERS.  1950 1950

These would probably be a good start - available from the Cape Archives

Hi Gillian, thanks for the reply and information. I will contact Cape archives and see what they can do. This is a new country for me to research.
