Default Harriett Lamb and George Cooper

This couple married by licence on 27th September 1814 at St Giles in the Field, London.

I haven't been able to find any children for them.

It appears that they were still in London in 1826 when Harriet's aunt Phebe Mallatratt wrote her will.

"I also give and bequeath to my nephew
Charles Lamb of Whitby in the County of York the second son of my said
sister Mary Lamb and to Harriott Cooper the wife of George Cooper of
London in the County of Middlesex and daughter of my sister Mary Lamb
aforesaid to each of them five pounds per annum to them and their heirs
Item I will and bequeath to James Lamb the youngest son of my sister
Mary Lamb the sum of five pounds five shillings in good and lawfull
money of Great Britain Item I give and bequeath to Mary Cooper widow
of the late Christopher Cooper of New Compton St London my plate
consisting of two table spoons seven tea spoons and a pair of sugar tongs"

I can't find when either Harriett/Harriott or George died. And were Christopher and Mary Cooper George's parents?

There is a George Cooper, son of Christopher and Mary, baptised 14 Feb 1791 at St Giles in the Fields, but the baptism record doesn't give any extra info to confirm it is the right George. From Googling, your Christopher Cooper was a grocer of 67 New Compton Street. I did find a British History Online page which says that New Compton Street was in St Giles in the Fields (footnote no 1):

If Phebe is leaving annuities. you need to look at the death duty registers. That should show when they died. (She is spelled Mallatrat there)

Thanks, Kate and Phoenix.

I've been trying to find wills for the Coopers but no luck yet.

I feel this is v likely to be a red herring, but am not having luck with eliminating these people, so I thought I'd put the details here as there's a good chance I shall see that are not yours as soon as I've typed this!

I can't stop looking at these two baptisms:

George Christopher Cooper
8 Jun 1828 Saint John and Saint Martin,Beverley,York George, Harriott

George senr is a clerk (in the regimental office? - the image is at FMP))

and this one:

Mary Ann Mopsa Cooper
30 Jan 1834 St Andrew, Holborn City of London George, Harriet

George is a lawyers clerk (LMA images).

I can't find what happened to any of these people or anything to give me any clues about them to eliminate them and it's driving me mad!!

Thanks, Merry.

I've seen the Mopsa one but not the one at Beverley.
I'll have a look later.

Mary Ann Mopsa Cooper was born 15 Sep 1831 according to the baptism record.

Then there's this burial:

Mary Ann Cooper bur 09 Feb 1834 aged 3 at St Andrew's Holborn and the address given is the same as for the baptism, 8 Gray's Inn Lane.

Thanks, Merry.

Harriet Cooper was also mentioned in the will of her sister Susanna Dexter of St Ives, Cambridgeshire in 1831.

Susanna Dexter late of St Ives in the County of Huntingdon Widow Deceased


"What wearing apparel I may have with the
little plate and other articles remaining, after
what I shall mention are disposed of – to be divided
between Mrs Beresford, William Lamb, & Harriet
Cooper my late sisters Children"
