I am looking for more information about my Great-Grandmother's family. Her name was Elizabeth (Lizzie) Caplin from Lewes, Sussex, England. Her parents were Richard Caplin and Susan Burfoot. She married Arthur Cockett. Any information would really be appreciated!

Hi there, I have some information about Richard Caplin, b.1878 Lewes, a merchant seaman by profession, who was son of Richard Caplin & Susan Burfoot, so brother of your great grandmother.

My information relates to his wartime experiences. His ship was sunk in the summer of 1940 (he then being aged 62/63)& for some time he was presumed drowned. However he had been taken prisoner and spent the rest of the war as a POW in France and Germany, latterly at the Milag camp for Allied Merchant Seamen. You will see his POW photo at Milag on a couple of the public trees (e.g Caplin / Leaton).

I believe he was married and did have a family - have been trying to make contact with his family/direct descendants, so far without success. Perhaps you are in contact with some of them ?

Feel free to get in touch.
Best regards
Rod Barron

Thank you for contacting me. This information interesting. We don't know a whole lot about that side of my mother's family (her grandmother's side) because none of them came over to the US. I am unable to access any of the public family trees as my subscription has expired.

According to my records/research, Richard did have a family. The information that I have for him is here: Let me know if you cannot see it.
