Parents of Alfred S G Cooper b. about 1912
« on: Sunday 09 November 14 16:29 GMT (UK) »
I have inherited a birth certificate for an unknown blood line and am currently trying to tie it into my database,  found in my mothers estate so must be somehow related, perhaps an illegitimate blood line kept secret.

Hence I am trying to trace the parents of Alfred S G Cooper birth registered in Sep 1912 e.preston with mothers surname Jones.

What information does the birth certificate give on the parents or is it a 'short' one

Hi

There is another marriage in 1895 East Preston district of a Stephen James Cooper, the two potential brides include a Kate JONES and Annie Mary Gibbins.

Can find census entries for a family in Littlehampton, East Sussex of a Stephen and Kate Cooper, but their ages are in the mid to late forties by 1911, so may be a little old to be Alfreds parents.

1891 census for the family I found show Kate Jones as housekeeper to Stephen Cooper, with 6 children

Lyminster

Stephen Cooper   29 mar.   gen lab.      bn Sussex Littlehampton
Kate Jones   26           S     Housekeeper         "                "
Arthur Cooper   8                                       "     Brighton
Albert Cooper   7                                             Lyminster
May Cooper   6                                                  "
William Cooper   5                                                  "
Henry Charles Cooper   2                                          "
Robertt M O Cooper   10mnths                               "

 Class RG12,  Piece 838,  Folio 104,  Page 11.

Wonder if Kate was their mother if they didn't marry until 1895.

I think only the full birth certificate will solve it or maybe his marriage in 1934  ;D

Maybe the G stands for Gale  :-\

I think we can discount this one. He was discharged from the army in 1914 suffering from severe heatstroke.  Wife named on paperwork, no mention of an Alfred.
