London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Help in finding Kate Cockell
« on: Wednesday 13 January 10 20:57 GMT (UK)  »
I know I definitely made this connection about a year ago after much searching on Ancestry, but blowed if I can find it now after many hours over the last couple of days.  I'm trying to find a Kate Cockell (not sure if this was her proper name or shortened).

Kate Cockell is the mother of Donald John Cockell (found that out on Wikipedia) who was the Light Heavyweight boxing champion in the early 1950s.    Don was born in 1928 and died in 1983.  He married a Patricia Mary and they had two sons.

I have Edmund James Cockell (b. 1868) married Susannah Ada Skiplorne (b.1870) in 1895.  Susannah died in 1896, poor girl after only one year of marriage.  Perhaps Susannah died giving birth to Kate?

As I say, I did find the connection once, so know there's a link.  All the above events took place in London.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks in advance

I'm new on here, having been recommended to me by someone on the Family Tree Forum.

I'm hoping that someone can help with information about this uniform please.  I believe it to be a hussar uniform, but can't seem to find the regiment (or date) after quite a bit of research.

Here it is:
