Couchman

From on Sun, 4 Nov 2007

Hi Elizabeth,
I caught your geocities website – after searching for “Sophia Couchman”
Just for info really. Richard Couchman left one son back in England – Henry Richard Couchman born 1832 in Worcester to his first wife Hannah Wilson, who died the following year.
1. Married at Worcester, St Nicholas, WOR Date 25/10/1831 Licence – Groom Richard George COUCHMAN aged – status – residence as entered – attributed Residence – Notes – Bride Hannah WILSON
2. Name – Anne COUCHMAN buried on 1 Apr 1833 aged 25 Abode Friars St, – buried at Parish Worcester St Helen, WOR Occupation – Description – Source – Extra Information –
3. Married at Worcester , St Martin , WOR Date 25/12/1834 Licence – Groom Richard George COUCHMAN aged – status Widower residence as entered – attributed Residence – Notes – Bride Elizabeth WILKINS aged – status – residence as entered – Attributed Residence – Notes – Misc. Info. –
As you can guess Henry Richard Couchman went on to father several children in the Birmingham area, one of which was my great great grandfather, Henry Oseland Couchman.
Oseland is a name that comes up a couple of times and may link the family to Richard Couchman & Sarah Oseland who were married 1803 in London – no proof as yet!
Hope this is useful
Cheers
Mark Couchman
