Hello my names Paula, I'm sending this via my husbands account. My grandmother was Lylie Evelyn Cook. Her real first name was Lilly not Lylie but she was known as Lylie. Her mother was Maria Gilbert from Ched zoy Somerset.. I know William was a carpenter. My cousin has a beautiful box made by him for his wedding to Maria. Lylie had it and treasured it. My father George Fraser was married twice. My mother was Belgian so When I was born Lylie was about 66yrs. I remember her telling me about the farm Williams parents had in Bridgewater. I also so,remember Aunt Flo. Lylie went to,work at about 13 in service and worked in a small Hotel in Clarence Gate in London. They had to retire her as they couldn't get insurance for her, she was 82 at the time. About 4 ft 6in tall. Very black hair. My father had Blonde hair and ice blue eyes. She always said her step mother didn't give her enough to eat that's why she's was so small. Ken ( my husband ) has had trouble looking for the Cooks in Bridgewater but he keeps trying. I don't know if this helps I do hope so. Oh by the way my daughters name is Kim and I have a half nephew Kim as well.

Hi here just logged on and found your reply.. So nice to hear more about the family.. For a large family there is very little info about them apart from general. Funny you say about the dark hair as most of my family had very dark hair.. Do you have any pics of the cook family? Would love to see any.... makes us distant relitives how bizarre.. Thank you for taking the time to reply this is the nearest info I've had but I'm so determined to find out more..
Keep intouch Kim
Ps Kim is a good name ;-)

Hi Kim, Im glad you received my post. I spoke to my cousin Alan and he doesnt know anymore that can help you. My Nan was the eldest girl and went out to work very early 13. Alan had never heard of Olive. As he is much older than me and Nan lived with him and his Mum and Dad he used to hear stories from Nan,but cannot recollect any about Olive.we have seen your public members tree and you have got back as far as we have. here is a photo of Lylie in her late 70s. take care Paula
