I am sorry you have not been receiving my e-mails.I have copied them below for your information. I live in Western Australia.I visited Melbourne last year and had lunch with 3 of my COATE cousins and one Aunty.I was in correspondence with John COATE who is the son of one of Ann's brothers. If you are interested in contacting them please let me know and I will pass on contact information. One of my cousins is a judge so I can only pass on a work contact for her. BELOW IS A COPY OF MY 2 EMAILS SENT IN MARCH AND APRIL: I have received your postings replying to my questions on the various messageboards.
I have found the information you mentioned and obtained copies of the marriage certificates.I have traced Vincent COATE through parish registers and found various siblings.Vincent's parents were Thomas COATE who married Mary COGGAN in 1800 in Muchelney, Somerset. I can't go back any further at this stage because I don't think Thomas was born in Muchelney whereas Mary COGGAN was born there.I am going to visit England in August and hope to track down more information.If you would like to share information you have about your family line and their connection to the COATE's, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Regards, Nigel BOUNDY NEXT EMAIL: Greetings Jeanette! I would love to see any pictures you have.Do you have a scanner and can you send them by e-mail?If not my address is P O Box 212, Wanneroo WA 6946, Australia. I have been able to track down some of the Somerset COATE mob. George Coggan COATE was one of the children of Vincent (b.1803, Martock, Somerset) and Ann (nee DYER) COATE (b. abt. 1816, Martock).They were married in Martock on August 10, 1837.Their other children were Susan (b. 1839, Martock), Thomas (b. 1846, Martock), Susan Ann (b. 1843, Martock), John Coggan (b. 1846, Martock) and Mary Coggan (b. 1858, Martock). Vincent COATE was one of the children of Thomas (b.1772 - I think!, Muchelney, Somerset) and Mary (nee COGGAN) COATE (b.1779, Kingston by Taunton, Somerset. They were married in Muchelney in 1800.Their other children were Susan (b. 1806, Martock), John (b. 1809), Martock), Lucy (b. 1815, Martock) and Mary Ann (b. 1818, Martock). If Thomas COATE was the one born in 1772, then his parents were John and Betty COATE of Muchelney.I need more information before I can confirm this and whether Betty is the Betty SHERRAD who married John COATE in Muchelney abt. 1769. Hope this information is illuminating. Look forward to hearing from you. Regards Nigel Boundy
