The Cooksey Family

The Cooksey family had all sorts of links with the Lavingtons. We have looked before at Arthur and family who (we think) were the final residents at Pond Farm in 1911 and we have seen their son, Arthur, who was an Easterton school boy in 1905.

Today we look at a large family group partly in the hope that someone might be able to give us and other Cooksey researchers some names.

Our information is that the lady with the young child on her knee is Elizabeth Annie Cooksey who was the wife of Arthur at Pond Farm. The date is thought to be late Victorian.

In 1891 Elizabeth and husband Arthur lived near Fiddington asylum. Arthur was a farmer. By 1901 he was farming on White Street in Easterton. The chances are, therefore, that this is a local photo. Can anyone identify the location? We wonder if the one man in the photo is wearing a clerical collar. Perhaps he can be identified. Or, indeed maybe any of the 14 ladies might be named.

If you can help then do get in touch.
