I'm needing help with my great grandfather's marriage to Florence Elizabeth Margaret Keen and their children.
My understanding from family (now deceased) is that their were 5 children: Lucy, Lilly Lillian Eliza Cock, Fred William Frederick Thomas Cock - my grandfather, Flossie Florence? Cock and Truro Truro Cock.
I'm not able to find any record of births or deaths of James Netherton's marriage to Florence Florence Elizabeth Margaret Cock or their children.
I have photographs of both my grandfather and another of his brother, Truro.
I've found baptism info for LILLIAN ELIZA COCK on Ancestry 24:

I found a my heritage tree ( not verified) that James Netherton Cock (20.09.1852 Port Alfred, died 1933) Married FIRST 11.03.1878 to Florence Elizabeth Margaret KEEN (04.06.1853 - 1885), and SECOND 17.05.1887 to Annie Caroline Botha (b? - 1915)
I also found James Netherton's tombsone on EGGSA in South End Cemetery, Port Elizabeth.
Hope this helps.
Thank you so much for this information ~ this is a great help!
This is definitely the same person and I my line comes from James Netherton Cock's marriage to Florence Elizabeth Margaret Keen, as besides Lillian Eliza, her children were listed for me by my grandmother before she passed away.
Thank you again for all your help...I really appreciate it.
