i have found out that ted/edward senior was definately born as a coffey surname in hampshire.as he married in 1917 possible birth 1890-1897?
i dont know as i havent proved it yet that his dad may well have been called william or else his uncle was called william.

we think he married as edward coffey cause of name change and as far as we know he married in hampshire.his son mark was born in 1917 in portsmouth but he may have had other children before so might have married before 1917?
