Corby Bunting

To any one in Appledore Devon who may be named Cook.I am hoping to find any of the decendants of John Singleton Cook Seaman from the port of Goole Yorkshire.
He settled inthe Northam area inthe late 1880's his wife was Mary Acford and his children in 1901 were Mary John Emma Martha Fred Lizzie Gladys and Jacob

Nice place Northam Devon, my G,Grandmother Gibbs, was the school mistress there, she´s buried in the churchyard, she would have taught Mary Acford´s children.

Sorry Corby, My very old, very late, aunt; only showed me the gravestone, or rather the Church yard and the old school building, in which Ggran used to teach. I've spent a few nights in Northham, the last were in 1992. As for being a sawyer, My GGgrandad was a journyman shipwright who lived in Appledore.
