Hope you can help
- Hi there,
I have been reading the posts and not really posting
anything for a lack of anything to post.
But I had recently gotten a copy, more like a pile of
documents for our family tree from my Grandmother, and
in it I had followed it back till I came to the same
roadblocks that she had. A few of them were, I thought,
completely hopeless, till I was going through my own
copies of the daily digests and came across the name
'Coates' mentioned in one of the posts and wondered if
they could be related to a search that I am working on.
One of the names in our family tree was a Sir Roger
Coates, who had a daughter named Ann (Anne). As it was
explained to me, Sir Roger's Daughter, Anne had fallen
for a gardener By the name of Joseph Flatt and they ran
off to America, I believe around 1820's or 1830's. I am
not certain of the date, but they had a son in 1837 and
a daughter in 1840. But mostly I am looking for
Information on Sir Roger Coates and if his wife's maiden
name was Robinson, as Anne's maiden name is listed as
both Coates and Coates-Robinson in the records that we have.
Any help is appreciated.
