    Calendar entry 
    • "Cooper John.
      Personal Estate £1,212 4s. 11d.
      31 October. The Will with a Codicil of John Cooper
      late of Wickham Villa Heathfield - road Croydon in the
      County of Surrey Gentleman who died 15 January 1891
      at Wickham Villa was proved at the Principal Registry
      by William Cooper of 7 South-park Hill-road Croydon Traveller
      the Son Maurice Cooper of 17 Mansfield - road Croydon
      Commercial Traveller the Nephew and George Elcomb of
      33 Brighton-road Croydon Commercial Clerk the Executors."

      It is interesting that John made a nephew an executor and not just his son William. Possibly son John had died, with such a common name it is hard to be sure. Although no relationship to George is shown in the statement, George was John's son-in-law, husband of John's daughter Charlotte.

    • GRO ref: Cooper, John to Brown, Jane Crittall q2 1851 London RD 2 187
      The only marriage of a John COOPER to a Jane C between 1851 (when John was shown in the census as a widower) and the 1861 census (by which time he had remarried).

      Since a Jane Crittall COOPER of the same age as the Jane C COOPER, wife of John in the 1861 census, died in the neighbouring RD of Croydon in 1888 I think it fairly safe to assume the marriage was of this couple.
