How about this for a prompt reply!!
As far as I understand it, tho order of the Cocksedge children is as follows :- Ted, Lillian, William, Jess, Emma, Harry, Amy and James. Lillian could therefore be a year older than William, who was born in 1887.
My part of the family isn't still local as William moved to Edmonton, London but I now live in Norwich and have been to and through Sicklesmere many times!
I'm not altogether sure where the farm is, or was, but I do know the cottage where the family lived. I say cottage - it was one of a terrace of 3 which has now been converted into what looks a very des. res.!! If you know the village at all, it's a largish house painted, when I last saw it, in Suffolk pink. There's a little brook, opposite but slightly to the south of the pub. ( which is called, I think, The Rushbrook Arms ) with a little track beside it. About 20m. along is a small private footbridge across the brook which leads to house. I have a photo of it taken at the beginning of the last century and it didn't look nearly as appealing! There are some people standing outside it - my dad knows who they are but I'd have to consult 'cos I can't remember !!
Look forward to hearing from you soon,
