Notes for Rev Edward Cooper
In 1826, from an assignment of an insurance now held at the London Metropolitan Archives, they were living at Hamstall Ridware, Staffs.

In her diary for 1 Jul 1802, Caroline Powys wrote: our Son Coopers Birth day 31 Born 17 [blank=1770].
Note that his age of 31 does not square up with the birth year of 1770.

He was a Chichele descendant with the right of free education at St John’s Oxford, which right went through all his children.

Another of his ancestors was the splendidly named Bulstrode Whitelock of Fawley Court, for whom there is a long line of apparently documented Bech ancestors going back to the 12th century.
