My mother's name is also Anne Cobham!Yes,I am related to Sir Alan Cobham.He was my paternal grandfather's first cousin.
And yes, I do have documentation to back this up!LOLI actually spoke with one of Sir Alan's sons (Sir Michael Cobham) on the phone recently, and invited him to our Cobham family reunion in August.However, he informed me he would be racing in some sort of sailing reggatta (sp?) so he will be unable to attend!
My grandfather Arthur H. Cobham was born in England, but was sent to Canada at age 14 by an orphanage similar to Barnardos.
Interesting about your husband being a pilot,is he related to Sir Alan, or perhaps you don't know yet, if you are just starting out in your genealogy.
