COSTER - Dublin, Ireland

Journal by laren

Hi There,

I am looking for information on the COSTER family possibly from Dublin. I have information of a John WHITLEY from Dublin, born about 1887, whose parents I believe are John WHITLEY and mother of COSTER. This may have been her married name from a previous marriage, she may have been widowed.

John WHITLEY (b 1887) moved to London and then came to Australia in the mid 1930s. Here married Emily Eliza Margaret RANN.

Any information on John or his parent would be great.



Looks like the Irish link may just have been family lore. I now have John WHITLEY, marrying in 1920 in London. His father is listed as John WHITLEY. I can find him on the 1891 and 1901 census, but his birth place is different on each. I think the 1891 location is wrong - listed as Raud, Dorset, can't find this town. In 1901 its listed as Shoud, Middlesex.

John WHITLEY, son of John WHITLEY and Sarah Ann COSTER. Coster was her name from her first marriage to Henry COSTER. She had three children with him, the last born after his death. She then had five children with John WHITLEY. Her maiden name most likely LUCAS.

Love to hear from people who might have a connection.

Try RootsChat to see if rootschatters can dig up any extra info for you - esp. via Census Lookup Requests. Your John WHITLEY should be on an 1891 Census somewhere.

Do you have his Death Certificate? If not, it usually states how long in Colony and may give you some more clues.
