On the IGI there are christenings of 6 children with father David Cotterell (different spellings) and mother Mary at St Peter, Woking, Surrey, except Mary who was christened at Horsell.

Jacob   1812
James 1815
John 1817
William 1825
Mary 1829 (christened 9th August 1829 in Horsell Surrey)
Ann 1832

Parents David Cottrill and Mary Marden’s marriage was at St Peter, Woking on 29 August 1812

Just after baby Ann was born and with a possibility given to me by a descendant that their father was transported I found this.

I’ve found 2 earlier criminal reports that are probably David.

I cannot find any newspaper clippings for David.
