John Francis Cooke & Frances Charlotte Chapman - a Memory of Whaplode Drove.
I don't personally have a memory of Whaplode Drove but my husband's great great grandparents lived there. In 1842 John Francis Cooke married Frances Charlotte Chapman in the parochial chapel in Whaplode Drove. He had a store and in 1843 he sold it and they moved to Canada. I'm wondering if there is any reference to him/them in the town record?
