My mum is Aileen Cottrell the only daughter of Cyril George Cottrell who is one of James Sons. Are you by any chance related to William Cottrell the oldest son of James who moved to Victoria from Western Australia where the family lived in Fremantle? I am very interested in joining the Yahoo Group as I have been researching this name for over 10 years. I would like to share my info with you so please send me your email address. Here is my web addresshttp://members.ozemail.com.au/~halrae/
I dont have too much information on the family and have only one contact in Italy from where James came. He seems to think we are related but still trying to make a connection. I have a copy of James Naturalisation Certificate and the information from when he came out here and on what ship but I can only trace him back as far as leaving Liverpool in England.
Hope to hear from you soon
