Like David Cooper (who has produced an excellent history of the Cooper family), my father Christopher Seward Cook is also a great grandson of Charles Seaward Cooper.
My father celebrated his 100th birthday on 15th January 2017! His grandmother was Eliza, the second child of Charles and Sarah Cooper. Eliza married Walter Cook from Rusper and they had two children:
- Seward James Cook (my grandfather) who married Clara Ethel Brain. Seward James was a member of London Regiment (London Rifle Brigade) and killed in World War 1 on 16 June 1917.
- Florence Cook.
I am also trying to establish why Seward James Cook was apparently also called Sid.
