Biographic info about George Cooper and Edward Utting
« on: Saturday 06 January 18 02:20 GMT (UK) »
Iím hoping someone can help me unpick the details behind this article and these unsavoury gentlemen.

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/11830366

George Cooper married Alice Rosetta Utting in 1884, but I canít find his date of birth, date of death or anything besides his marriage and children to Alice.

Iím also unsure who Edward Utting is.  Alice had two siblings with middle name of Edward - could it be one of them? Or is it my 2xgreat grandfather who also went by the name of Edmund Utting (b. 1845 in Norwich) and was jailed in Vic in 1877? I donít think so as he had moved to Moonta/Yeltsa by then, married Grace Lugg Hooper and was having children.

If anyone can help with some biographical details about George and identify the right Edward, Iíd appreciate it.

Many thanks in advance!
