Henry senior and Lavinia died in Liverpool in 1860.

Looking for Henry junior in 1861 and 1871 in England or Scotland, thanks.

So far I can't find the marriage of Henry to Lavinia.
 
This could be Henry in 1871, lodging in Edinburgh.

7 Mint, Ton Edingburgh, Canongate
Harry Cooper 26 Lodger Shoemaker born England.

No sign of him in 1861.

Lavinia's maiden name is Tait.

The wrong birth for Henry Cooper with mmn Slade ? There is no other birth in Huddersfield for a Henry Cooper.

I can find no births for the children in 1851 census with mmn Tait.

All the children on the Census you quote have mmn Slade.

I cannot find a Cooper/Tait or Cooper/Slade marriage, nor do there seem to be any baptisms for the children so perhaps they were nonconformists.

Do you have the wrong Census entry or is Lavinia's maiden name of Tait an error. No bapitsm found under either Tait or Slade for Lavinia
 
Thanks emeltee.

I don't know. I'm working backwards from this marriage.

Unfortunately still no baptism for Henry, marriage for his parents or siblings. Nothing on the English or Scottish Censuses either until after Henry and Jane have married.
 
Thanks emeltee.
