Name:  COATES, Graham & Co
Address: 5 Cowgate, Peterborough
Working Dates: 1914-1918?
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: No trace of this firm shown in local directories. But see below a portrait of an unknown WW1 period lance corporal in uniform in an oval design, postcard sized portrait, not postally used and backstamped in blue ink using a rubber stamp "Graham Coates & Co 5 Cowgate Peterborough" (author's collection).
References: Kelly's 1914 Directory of Northamptonshire lists an "EaU & Coates, picture frame makers" at 5 Cowgate Peterborough. This is probably a transcription error for "Ball and Coates" - see above.

COATES, Herbert George - See also BALL & COATES

Name:  COATES, Herbert George b: 1883 d:1978
Address: Market Place, Wisbech
Working Dates: 1910-40s
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Herbert George Coates, was born in 1883 at Langtoft Yorkshire. His father, George Robert Coates, was a grocer. In 1891 Herbert and his family were still resident at Langtoft. In 1901 Herbert was living with his uncle, Albert Coates, and aunt, Annie Coates, at Coniston Yorkshire. Herbert was an apprentice bricklayer and his uncle was a joiner, employing others. At some point during the next few years Herbert gave up bricklaying in favour of photography. In the 1911 census Herbert was in Peterborough, working as a photographer and living at 35 Towler Street with his 30 year old sister, Alice Eliza, and his brother in law, Alexander James Ball, who was a joiner. Possibly this census return captures the moment when Alexander, learning from his brother in law, also decided to change his career path and become a photographer. The two brothers in law then went into partnership as Ball and Coates, photographers at Queen Street Peterborough. They appear in local trade directories between 1911 and 1912, but the partnership could have continued for longer. No trace can be found of a wartime service record for Herbert George Coates.

At some point after the end of WW1 Herbert George Coates was living at Wisbech and was producing local real photograph postcards. By 1922 Alexander James Ball was listed in local trade directories as a photographer on his own account at 6 Glebe Road Peterborough.

Herbert George Coates produced postcards, not just of the Wisbech locality, but much of East Anglia. Around 1926-7 the Imperial Photo Co was listed in local directories at Market Place Wisbech and it is believed that Herbert was involved in some way with this firm, but the firm was bought up by local Wisbech photographer, Lilian Ream in 1932. At some point Herbert was trading as H Coates and Son, having taken his son Kenneth into the business. The business did not appear in local trade directories, Herbert traded from his home at 7 Victory Road, Wisbech. Herbert retired some time after WW2 and his son Kenneth continued the business. Over 3000 of his negatives were acquired in 1977 by the Wisbech and Fenland Museum. Local Historian Andrew Ingram believes around 5000 negatives have been lost, sold or destroyed over the years. The Wisbech and Fenland Museum does not have any business records for Herbert Coates, but some of the packaging of negatives they hold is marked with orders for batches of prints, suggesting that he put out his postcard printing to another company.

The example postcard below is one of Coates' Nene Series depicting the bridge and Clarkson Memorial Wisbech, c1940.

Name:  COCKRANE, William C     b: 1879 Lambeth      d:
Address: 103 Russell Street, Cambridge
Working Dates: c. 1891
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: William, aged just 12 years, was listed in the 1891 Census at the above address as a photographer's assistant. He was the adopted son of Mary Ann Holmes b: 1854 London. In 1891 Mary had three other children, but William was the oldest and the only one adopted. Currently no trace has been found if William or his family in earlier or later census returns, and so his career remains to be discovered.

Name:  COCKS, Frank S(weetland)      b: 1871 Lewisham, Kent      d: 1936
Address: 6 Exchange Street, Peterborough
Working Dates: 1904 - 1906 at Peterborough, later in Bedford as Frank SWEETLAND.

Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Frank S Cocks was the son of a commercial traveler Jonathan Cocks. His father worked in seeds. The family lived in Lewisham Kent, then East Dulwich before arriving at Peterborough in the late 1870s. In the 1881 census the family lived at Lincoln Road Peterborough and by 1891 they had moved to The Ferns, Park Road, Peterborough. By this time Frank was employed as a clerk. In March 1901 Frank had married Kate Bertha Woodcock from Kettering and they had a 3 year old daughter Bertha Jane. They were then living in the High Street at Chatteris Cambridgeshire and Frank was employed as an engineer's clerk.

Frank must have traveled around at this point. In August 1901 he was at 183 Freeman Street, Grimsby when he took photographs of Grimsby, now in the National Archives http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C12769406?descriptiontype=Full&ref=COPY+1/452/222. In 1904 Frank was at 28 Freckleton, Lytham, when he took a photograph of rough seas at Lytham, now in the National Archives http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C13304109 . The Peterborough Advertiser on 23 Jan and 30 Jan 1904 carries an advertisement for F. Sweetland Cocks under the heading "Photography" at Exchange Street, Peterborough offering Cabinet Photographs from 10/- per dozen, Cartes de Visite 5/- a dozen and midget photographs and life sized enlargements from sittings or copies. The advertisement states that the firm was formerly Blackman's. The Kelly's Directory of 1906 lists Frank at Peterborough at 6 Exchange Street, where he was listed in the commercial index as a photographer.

Something unusual must have occurred at this point as Frank and his family changed their names from Cocks to Sweetland and were recorded with this name in the 1911 census. This was not an error in completing the form. All three members of the family were shown with the surname "Sweetland" and the form was signed "Frank Sweetland". In the 1911 census they were living in Bedfordshire at 81 Tavistock Street Bedford, and Frank was listed as a photographer working on his own account. The change in surname was not permanent. When he died in 1936 Frank was living in Bournemouth and his death and probate records were all in the name of Frank Sweetland Cocks and his widow was shown as Kate Bertha Cocks. His estate was then valued at £538.

There is another example of Cocks' work in the National Archives listed here: http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C14125276 - 'Photograph of the meet of the Fitzwilliam Hunt at the Guildhall Peterborough March 10th 1904. Size of plate 8½ x 6½. See also below a real photo postcard of Bromham Church, postally used in 1908. The name of the location is finely incised onto the negative and the reverse bears a half inch diameter round rubber stamp "F.Sweetland Bedford".

Name:  CODMAN, John      b: 1840?       d:
Address:
Working Dates: 1867
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Traveling photographer. Cambridge Chronicle and Journal - Saturday 01 June 1867 P7 records -
ISLE MAGISTRACY. ELY DIVISION, May 30. (Before the Rev. George Hall.) John Codman, traveling photographer, was charged by John Westrope, confectioner, with wilful damage to his property, at Ely fair. Settled out of Court, by arrangement, complainant paying 13s, defendant, 3s.6d. It is very difficult to pin down details of this photographer. There are two entries in the England Census returns that are possible. In the 1871 Census there is a John Codaman b: Norwich 1840 listed as a photographer in a caravan (one of 18 so listed, presumably a fair, occupied by traveling showmen, travelers, a bazaar keeper and toy seller) at Castle Meadow, Norwich with a Charles Bushell, b 1847, Downham, Norfolk, a servant. There is a John Codman (b Norwich 1838) listed as a photographer in the 1881 census living with his wife Annie (b 1861 at Malton Yorks) and son William (b 1880 at Pateley Bridge Yorks) at Harefield Houses Pateley Bridge Yorks.

Name:  COLDHAM, Herbert   b:1871 Norwich  d:1950 Northampton
Address: 42 Ermine Street, Huntingdon
Working Dates: Huntingdon c.1891, later in Northamptonshire.
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Herbert Coldham is listed in the 1891 Census as a photographer, neither employed or an employer. He was living at 42 Ermine Street, Huntingdon with his parents and two brothers. His father, Alfred Coldham b:1836 Heigham Norfolk, was a brewer's cooper, and his mother was Kate (Catharine) Coldham b:1844 Norwich. His brothers were Walter Coldham b: 1873 Norwich, confectioner and Ernest Coldham b: 1875 Norwich billiard marker. The family had left Huntingdon at the latest by 1898, when Kelly's Directory of Northamptonshire lists Coldham and Son, photographers, at 178 Kettering Road, Northampton. The 1901 census also shows Herbert at 178 Kettering Road, Northampton, living with his parents and his father, Alfred Coldham, was no longer a cooper, but was a photographer. Both Herbert and Alfred were shown as photographers working from home on their own accounts. Alfred died in 1902, but Coldham and Son continued to operate at least until 1920. In 1911 Herbert was still at 178 Kettering Road Northampton and was still a photographer working from home on his own account. He had married Rose Walden b:1867 Northampton. The two portraits below, of Herbert Coldham and his father Alfred Coldham, in mounts from Coldham and Son 178 Kettering Road, Northampton, are reproduced with grateful thanks to Cecily Porritt who posted these on Ancestry.com as part of the Coldham Family Tree.
Also living with them was Enid Muriel Walden, Herbert's step-daughter b:1896 Northampton, who assisted in the business, and his 4 year old son, Claude Herbert Kirshaw Coldham b:1907 Northampton.

Name:  COOKE, Albert W  b: 1840 Kings Lynn, Norfolk   d:
Address: Market Street Ely
Working Dates: 1867-75
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: There appears to be some overlapping of dates for Albert W Cooke and Henry John Cooke below, brothers who both operated in Market Street Ely. The directory entries for 1867 and 1875 show some inconsistency of first name and spelling. However, the 1871 census lists Albert W Cooke b:1840 Kings Lynn, as a photographer. Living with him were his wife, Fanny E Cooke, a dressmaker b: 1842 Kings Lynn Norfolk and their children: Ellen M b:1865 Ely, Agnes A b:1867 Ely, Frederick W b:1869 Ely and Flora J b: 1871 Ely. In the previous census in 1861, Albert was living in Kings Lynn Norfolk with his mother Charlotte Cooke b:1800 West Lexham Norfolk, then a stationer and bookseller and with another brother, Thomas W Cooke b:1828 Kings Lynn, a boot and shoe maker and musician. In 1861 Albert Cooke's occupation was shown as a "solicitor's general clerk and a musician".

Name:  COOKE, Edward         b:       d:
Address: Crowland, near Peterborough.
Working Dates: 1847
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Edward Cooke was the son of Mrs Ann Cooke. Ann Cooke was widowed in 1843, and to support her family she became a licensee of Beard for the Daguerreotype process in the County of Lincolnshire. She was the first lady photographer in the British Isles. Edward succeeded his mother as the Beard Licensee for Lincolnshire, and became an itinerant Daguerreotypist in the County. His travels included Bourne, Stamford and Crowland in 1847. In December 1847 he was reported to be in Bourn with his partner, Mr Cole. By 1848 he had passed on his licence to G.Cole.

Name:  COOKE, Henry John      b: 1832 Kings Lynn Norfolk      d:
Address: Market Street, Ely
Working Dates: 1855-70
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Brother of Albert W Cooke above. Photographic Artist, Market Street, Ely. Directory entries cover the period 1855-1869. Then the Cambridge Chronicle, Sat 15 January 1870, reported: Fire. On Thursday morning last, about four o’clock, a fire broke out in the studio of Mr Cooke, photographer, of Market-street. The studio, wood and glass structure, was the back of his house, and adjoined Salem Chapel, in Chequers Lane. This building too was partially injured, one window being destroyed. The studio was wholly burnt down with all its contents. Soon after the fire broke out the neighborhood was alive, about 100 persons having congregated, by whose exertions the fire was extinguished, its ravages being confined to the studio in question, and a portion of the chapel building. We understand that Mr Cooke is partially insured in the Sun Fire Office, but that Salem was not so protected. As there had not been a fire in the studio for several days, the origin of the outbreak is a mystery. In the same issue of the paper a letter appeared deploring the fact that the water supply to the town of Ely was turned off from 9pm to 6am every day and how much more damage might have been caused in the town had the fire occurred on a windy night. Neither the report nor the letter specified the owner of the property beyond "Mr Cooke photographer", so it is not clear to which of the Cooke brothers the fire related. The 1871 Census shows Henry J Cooke in Market Street Ely, an attorney's clerk. Living with him were his son Henry WN Cooke b1858 Ely, his mother, Charlotte Cooke an annuitant, b:1800 West Lexham Norfolk. In the next household in Market Street Ely was another Cooke family, the head of which was an Albert W Cooke b:1840 Kings Lynn, who was listed as a photographer. Living with him were his wife, Fanny E Cooke, a dressmaker b: Kings Lynn Norfolk 1842 and their children: Ellen M b: 1865 Ely, Agnes A b: 1867 Ely, Frederick W b:1869 Ely and Flora J b: 1871 Ely.
