The Coopers of Coopers Hill, Queens county Family Tree

Back to The Coopers of Coopers Hill
Note: this is not a complete family tree for this Cooper line, it just covers the period that my Bowles of Ballickmoyler, Queens county were the Cooper's tenants.  However, these Coopers with their strong family tradition in the Quaker faith were certainly related to another Cooper line of Dublin and Carlow who, surprisingly, were very much leaders of the Anglo-Irish establishment although I'm not yet sure just how they were related.  See A Proposed Cooper Family Tree for what I believe is the simplest solution which fits all the known facts.
Thomas Cooper (lived Newtown, co. Carlow and Sragh (later Coopers Hill), Queens county)
(from family's naming patterns his father was possibly a William, see my Proposed Cooper Family Tree)
1.  William Cooper d. Jan. 7, 1713/14 (7th day 11th mos 1713) (lived Ballintrane, co. Carlow; held land in Queens county and Wexford at time of his death)
(his Will proven Dec. 9, 1713 mentions his cousins Tom Wattson and John Cooper; the Will overseers were John Lackey of Staplestown and Samuel Wattson of Killconner)  ref.  Text of Will
2.  Edward Cooper (inherited father's Carlow property) b. 9th mos 1667
m. Ann Inglefield (dau. of John Inglefield of Dublin) 26th day 8th mos, 1697
They lived at his father's property in Newtown when all but last child were born.  In 1713 when daughter Anne was born they were living at Shragh in Queen's county (near present day Ballickmoyler) which they later renamed Cooper's Hill.
