Thank you for last message. Fencing is a sport.
John and Jacoba Jackson had 9 children, their names as follows: Johanna Maria, William Charles, Hildagonda, Dorothea Wilhelmina, Nora Laura Winnifred, Howard William, Grace Magdalena Elizabeth, Gwendoline Beatrice, Vera Kathleen.
The information regarding John living in Gouda is from family living in England who had been corresponding with my Uncle here in Australia. NOt sure how reliable the information was but we have so little to go on.
John gained employment with a respectable photography business in England known as Elliot & Fry. They photographed VIP, government ministers, sporting heroes, society people and even Charles Darwin.
My Uncle is going to contact friends in England who have a daughter living in The Hague, and see if she will go to the archives of The Hague & search the Bevolkingsregister for the record of Jacoba Sutmuller for us. This is our only source to research the register.
