Hi Cherel

I have looked on the IGI and the Hugh Wallis website of IGI batch numbers for Mancetter itself and the only William Cooper baptised in the village was in 1777.

Are you sure that he was from there? I take it did you found a marriage or burial for him in Mancetter?

hi benny! yes the one you found is his son, the marriage i found was on the web and his wife was alice jeffcote, but it had alice born in mancetter and william as OF mancetter- so i dont think he could have been born there - he obviously had all his children there but i cant find death either, the only way i got his birth date was from his marriage, regards c.

Hi

Cooper is quite a common name unfortunately. You could try looking for any other people with the same surname as William to see if they are related. This would make it much easier to trace his place of origin, ie through marriage witness names etc.
