I am also looking for information about the Crocker/Coaker family, originally from Beesands in Devon. We have traced the family back through three generations of Ephaphras to Henry Crocker, born 3.4.1743 and Mary Thombs. My great-great-grandfather William Crocker, b. 4.5.1828 married Susan Cole. Was it this Susan who ran a pub in Beesands? Their son Alfred Coaker (so why the name change? maybe just a mistake on a handwritten form...) was born 3.3.1867. He married Mary Ann Jessop b. 1.6.1872, they lived in South Bank, near Middlesbrough, first on West Terrace, then on Pearl Street, later on Costa Street. He was a fisherman and wore a navy blue jumper, though was listed in 1921 as a labourer. They had several children, including my grandmother Florence Mahalia Coaker (married William Prosser). Her sisters were Sarah (who married a Jackson, many children all brought up in the South Bank/Middlesbrough area), May (don't know married name, son Alistair), and Mary (Jinks, no children). Great grandma Coaker made icecream in their back yard and it was either Alfred's brother or perhaps a son, who had lost a leg, and who went round the streets selling it from a cart. I knew grandma Coaker but unfortunately Alfred had died before I was born (1947). I am very curious about the name Epaphras and how it came into the family - chosen with a pin from the bible? I think it only appears there once.

Hi Barbara,I am a long way from my family history,but as I remember it,there were either two Coaker  brothers or cousins,who went from Devon to the North East I think they both married up there but only one stayed the other came back to Devon,with regard Alfred born 1867 find it hard to believe he got married at 5 years of age  :o I think one of them married at Normanton,,I do not believe I ever found the connection to Beesands,do you have the Mary Ann Jessop marriage cert does it say Alfred was born Beesands? just a thought but Coaker is a Devon name it is possible that a non local clergy,put down Coaker instead of Crocker because it sounded like it,and in that era many people could not read,still it has awakened this line again,I will try to get to my old computer and see what I have.
Best Regards Brian Coaker

Brian, happy to "meet" another Coaker. The other date given is the birth date of his wife, I'm not saying he got married age 5! Unfortunately I don't have their marriage certificate, just a family tree telling me that Alfred Coaker was the son of William Crocker and Susan Cole, and he married Mary Ann Jessop daughter of Samuel Jessop and Susannah Coleman.

I know that William was born in Beesands in 1828 and died there in 1890, and that his siblings were:
Henry b 1819
John b 1820
John b 1824 (why two Johns? strange.)
Susanna b 1826
Samuel b 1830
George b 1835
Elizabeth Jane b. 1838
As William lived and died in Beesands I presume that Alfred was born there.

This family is descended from Henry Crocker born in Dartmouth 1743 and Mary Thombs (no details known)
