I have an Edward (Edwin) Allison Cobham who married Sarah Charlotte Martin in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada on 12 May 1910.I believe Edward to be the son of Charles E. Cobham and Lavinia Nice. (Even though the on-line birth transcription lists the mother as Sarah Nice, the family bible gives Edward’s mother’s name as Lavinia).Charles and Lavinia were married 7 Dec 1876, Saint John.Other children of Charles and Lavinia were:Walter, Charles, Ralph, Arthur and Edna.The 1901 census shows a birth date for Charles as 17 Dec 1852 in Ireland.However, in the 1881 census, Charles and family are living in Sackville, Westmorland Co and Charles is shown as born in England about 1855.Does anyone know which one of these births is the correct one and who are the parents of Charles Cobham (possibly James and Lura?)Has anyone done any research on this family in Britain?
