     Alfred James Coombs Shapcott was born circa 1845 at Bristol, EnglandG.2 His was commonly known as Alfred James Coombs-Shapcott, Alfred was the son of Ann Shapcott, born out of wedlock. Hence he was called Alfred James Shapcott. Later she married Samuel Coombs and Alfred "adopted" the name of his adoptive father and called himself Alfred James Coombs-Shapcott. Henceforth confusion has reined supreme with some surnames as Coombs-Shapcott, others as Shapcott with Coombs in the given names and others as just Shapcott.
For the sake of this reaserch I have tended to use Shapcott as the Surname and Coombs as a given name unless legal documents quote differently.2
Alfred James Coombs Shapcott married Eliza Jane Waite circa 1866 at Bristol, EnglandG.1 From his son's death certificate Alfred was listed as a Painter.
Alfred James Coombs Shapcott died on 7 September 1898 at 8 Royal York Cres, Bristol, EnglandG. He was engaged at the time paining this house "when the ladder suddenly broke and he fell from the third story into the area, adistance of something like a hundred feet. The poor fellow was picked up in an uncoscious state, and he died before medical aid could be obtained. The body was taken to the deceased's residence, where it awaits an inquest." He resided at 19 Dowry Parade, Hotwells.
