Do you have a COOTE in your family tree?

Another recent photo postcard find in York is this one below and as always I would love to reunite it with a  family member if possible!


It was sent in 1906  to Mrs COOTE, 5 Tapton Park Road, Ranmoor, Sheffield and the message reads ‘Dear Aunt Lizzie …… love from us all Hilda’


Is Hilda shown in the photo?

I have managed to find the address on the 1911 census, which shows Elizabeth COOTE aged 48 living with her husband Matthew John COOTE, also aged 48, whose occupation is a Coachman.


Source Information: 1911 England Census Source Citation: Class: RG14; Piece: 27753

Matthew John  COOTE married Elizabeth CLARK in the October quarter of 1892 in Beverley in Yorkshire.

Matthew was born in Brandesburton in Yorkshire the son of William and Hannah COOTE and had siblings George, Fanny and Sybil.

He died on 31st March 1935 aged 72 and his death was registered in the Beverley Registration District – his address on the Probate record was 17 Regent Street in Beverley in Yorkshire and Elizabeth COOTE his wife is his Executor.

I can find no children for Matthew and Elizabeth COOTE, so possibly there may be a descendant of Hilda out there somewhere who would like a copy of this postcard and might be able to confirm if the photo is indeed a family connection.
