Hi

There are some entries on the 1911 index for this name including an entry in Middlesex

There is also an entry for a Daniel Cooper b 1875  in Middlesex which has been amended to Vanslo

Rootschat do not allow 1911 lookups so you would need to buy credits to view the entries yourself.

If you are viewing them via http://www.1911census.co.uk/search/tnaform.aspx  you will need to look for the second entry as Daniel Cooper

My ggg grandad was sam cooper (norwood sam) I think he had a son called vanslow. This was a common name in the family. I think he married a smith. Does anyone have a family tree of my family or photoes. As I dont know how to do things on the computers.  Thanks maxwell williams

 :)hi max
i think the sam cooper you are looking for married amy smith, i do not know if the vanslow im looking for would be the same one as you, if you could put more information this may help, maybe your grandparents ect this could help where your family lived as many names as possible, then this will help people make a connection :)

Hello sorry to poke my nose in here but the Vanslow Cooper I think you looking for was my great great Grandfather , he also had a son called Vanslow (uncle Vanny) and one called Henry who i am named after along with me father me grandfather and my son little Henry boi lol.........Now me great grandfather (Henry) who was a lovely man had a sister called Oachie (aunt Oachie) and two other sisters one who married Chick Summers father to Alfie and Jimmy Summers and the other sister married I think a Brazil and he's brother (uncle Vanny) Vanslow had a boy called Gary me (cousin Gary) who still lives in Teddington ............All these Coopers come from one man called Mattias Cooper the Royal rat catcher lol and are known as the Windor Coopers and are the oldest Gypsies in the country ....Vanslow is a dutch name and that would make sense because before the coopers travelled to England they were traced to Holland and was known as the black Dutch as cooper gypsy skin is very dark ....A gypsy coopers real romany name is Vardo masaplona but because we only spoke romany when we entered the country the English could not understand us and as you know a Vardo is a trailer or wagon in romany and we the Coopers built barrel top  wagons and as you know in english a cooper was a barrel maker so the english called us coopers as our wagons were built the same as barrels hahaha........I also remember me grandfather cooper always going on about he's cousins the Keffords and that some of them had got work in Australia spraying roofs and tarmacing and i once even spoke to one of them on the phone about me going out there to work with them but I never ended up going....

 :) :) :)ah thank you so much info and yes its the right family, oachie married my great grands nephew noah lawrence, they seemed to settle in stains middlesex. its said that vanslow married florence penfold i dont see any evidence of her being penfold, but found vanslow in york rd with a florence, when oachie married she gave york road as her address, on later electoral registers you find vanslow with a jenny cooper,at the same address i traced this back to her being genty kefford have you heard of the lawrences?my grandad swaileys mother was annie taylor daughter of plato and betsie, thank you for all of this, oh one last thing, so is vanslow jr mother amy cooper  :)

Title: Re: vanslow cooper
Post by: Henry Cooper on Friday 11 July 14 21:22 BST (UK)
Right this is where it gets confusing .........My great grandfather Henry, Oachie's brother married a woman called margaret cooper her maiden name was already Cooper(me great grandmother) and im pretty sure they were cousins whats not unusual with in gypsies as you probably know but i dont know if they were 1st or second cousins but rumor has it she run off with a man called Tom scott but she must of come back to me grandfather because I new and love me great grandmother.......Vanslow Lawrence(elvis singer) son of Oachie 's was very close to me grandfather(my fathers father) and used to go to work with him but i dont know who he married but i can find out because me grandmother is still alive and going strong lol and she will know im seeing her tomorrow...Vanslow Lawrance's sisters one of them was called Lila Lawrance and she married a Horse dealer called Jonny Cooper lol who is related to me great grandmother Margaret cooper.....Now I can find out more about this too because one of Lila and Jonnys Sons rung me up the other day (little Jonny) to buy some caravans from me as thats what i trade in and I will be going to there yard in the next couple of weeks and will have a good catch up as i haven't seen none of Jonny and Lila's lot in years.....another of Oachies Daughters married one of the Ball's but not sure who but again I can ask.........You mention the name florence and asked about Amy cooper ....Right Amy cooper was Oachies sister she married Chicken Summers and had 2 boys and 2 girls....Oachie had another sister called Fiance Cooper (aunt Fiance) and this could be where the name Florence is coming from because they all lived in york rd ...........Now you ask about Penfolds ..both my great grandfather (Henry Cooper ) and great grandmother (Margaret Cooper) both claimed that there mothers where Penfolds lol but again the only evidence of this I have is that there's loads of Penfolds  around me down here in Kent and they all claim to be related to me lol...........Was your Grandad swailey a Lawrance and he's mother was a Taylor ....I have loads of Taylor cousins lol and have a good few friends with the name swailey or swales for short ...........Are you a traveller ??? What is your surname now???? what was your fathers surname???
Title: Re: vanslow cooper
Post by: Henry Cooper on Friday 11 July 14 22:47 BST (UK)
Right Just spoke to me granny and im wrong about a couple of things lol...........Me great granny never run off with tom Scott hahahaha her sister Lydia Cooper was married to him lol where i got that from i dont know........... and Florance Penfold Was married to Vanlow Snr making her my great great granny.....
Title: Re: vanslow cooper
Post by: horsesmad on Friday 11 July 14 23:38 BST (UK)
 :)lol, i really need to read all you have written over again, i have a tom scott lol my great great grand mother was elizabeth scott her parents were fred scott and cinderella lee, the scotts ended up around mitchim, no i am not a traveller, my nan was may lawrence, she had a brother swailey, he went by the name sonny lawrence, my great grandad swailey was killed in the first world war, my grandads brothers were noah lawrence he married lila dixey, henry lawrence he married lila port and alfred who married maria lee :)

Post by: Henry Cooper on Saturday 12 July 14 00:00 BST (UK)
You say your not a gypsy lol but all the names you are looking for apart from lawrance are gypsy names hahaha .........I am a gypsy and the problem with gypsies is everyone names there kids after there self's and only breed with other close gypsy families who are usually related anyway making it near on impossible to trace them back ..........
Title: Re: vanslow cooper
Post by: horsesmad on Saturday 12 July 14 00:13 BST (UK)
 :)umm i know the name lawrence doesnt come up, but my great great grandad job, well his mother was jane hilton, she had a son emmanuel hilton, she then married a james castle, he died, but she had a son with him james, husband james then dies, she gets with thomas lawrence, but job and james are never with her, first they are with the castles, then they are with abel williams, then for twenty years job goes by the name castle not lawrence, i dont know lol  :)
Title: Re: vanslow cooper
Post by: Henry Cooper on Saturday 12 July 14 00:26 BST (UK)
I know the Castles they are close to my family and related I also know the Hiltons who are also gypsies and are related to the castles lol
Title: Re: vanslow cooper
Post by: Henry Cooper on Saturday 12 July 14 00:44 BST (UK)
You see even though its hard to trace gypsies back the saving grace is that they dont lose each other like other people as they are such a close nit community and i would have money on it that all the names you have mentioned such as castles , hiltons, lee's, taylor's, penfolds, scott's , coopers , keffords, are directly related to the people that surround me today and my guess is that because it sounds like a couple of these gypsy women married gorjas (none gypsy people) like you family the Lawrance's back then that would of been shameful meaning these women would of been expelled for the community leading to over time losing all history of where they come from .........this is just my theory but I would have money on it and this would explain why Job and Jim held the name Castle as they considered there self's gypsies

henry you have been such a great help thank you, its hard for people like me who are not travellers, to find people who are that will share info with us, im not pretending to be a traveller but my ancestors were so when you are trying to do your family tree its hard, also all the marrying in and out does not help :)

Hi hoping someone can help, I’m trying to find information on my great grandfather Samuel Cooper married to Violet had 5 kids including my Nan Irene Clare. Any information would be greatly appreciated, I am told he had a brother called Vanslow. He lived in a lot of places but towards the end of his live he lived with my Nan in twinning Avenue.
