WILLIAM COPE 1861 CAMBRIDGESHIRE
« on: Thursday 02 February 06 20:24 GMT (UK) »
Have found my ancestor WILLIAM COPE in the 1901 census, living in BROMLEY KENT, born abt 1858.

I am confused by his birthplace.  It reads:  COM, Cambridge

Does anyone know what this means?

I would be grateful for any information about him in 1861 if he appears there.

many thanks,
Christine

Re 1901 - whilst the index says COM, Cambridge, the image says Cambs, Cambridge.

It means another indexing error!

 :) :) :)

Thankyou for the info!

I used it on freebmd, and found the William James Cope you mentioned - unfortunately it turns out that he died in March 1865.

I have found a William Parker Cope (June 1857 3b 625) and William D Cope (Dec 1859 3b 597)  from the District of WISBEACH.

Is WISBEACH still in Cambridgeshire?  Neither appear in the 1861 census so I wondering if perhaps the border had moved.

Thanks also Bedfordshire Boy for clearing up the birthplace problem.  I was starting to look for Poorhouses and Orphanages with the initials COM - so that has saved me some time!

regards,
Christine
