Coopers & Bakers in Cheshire
- I am looking for information on my husbands grandparents who
originated in the Congleton area.
Grandfather was William Cooper, born 01 June 1868, in the above area
we believe. According to what we've been told his father was a
Wheelwright. William was a carpenter and possibly a wheelwright as
well. He and 3 brothers emmigrated to Canada in about 1911. He was
married twice, 2 daughters from first marriage - Gwen and Alice.
Gwen came to canada with William to keep house. Alice stayed in the
Grandmother Florence Hannah Baker was William's second wife. We have
little to no information on her. Their children born in England
include Elsie, Albert, Herbert and Florrie.
Any information on the above couple would be very much appreciated.
