Cowper/Cooper and Abram?
« on: Friday 03 April 20 16:05 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I'm wondering if anyone has any information on where these family members may have been born etc...

My relative Elizabeth Cowper, born to Sarah and Thomas Cowper/Cooper in c.1796 Chalgrave area, Bedfordshire. Thus presuming siblings were Joseph c.1793, Thomas c.1797, Mary Warner c.1800, and Henry c.1803. There is a marriages for Thomas to Sarah Abram in 1791 chalgrave, bedfordshire which would seem to match up. However I'm having trouble locating either births and deaths for both Thomas and Sarah? Any information would be of great help Thanks in advanced

EDIT: The only Sarah I can find is Sarah Abraham, born 1773 (presume died) and 1778 in Woburn, bedfordshire to Christopher and Elizabeth
