I'm not sure where to post this ... my family are all over the place and I have a hard time keeping up with them ... but these Coopers are the bane of my life and I think I need some help please !!  ::)

My prolific Great Great Grandparents William Cooper and Elizabeth Rowe were married 15th July 1833 Old Church St Pancras London - he was a Breeches Maker !

I have 1841 1851 1861 1871 ... though William died between 61 - 71 ... I'm trying to track down some of the children I have Alfred aged 5 in 1851 and I've just started on Edmund ( who both ended up in Lancashire !! ) ... but if anybody can see any of the others ... I'd be very grateful !

Thanking you in advance !

Cumberland / The Death of Mr. John McCouts .....
« on: Friday 08 January 10 18:10 GMT (UK)  »
I came across this looking for something else ... thought it maybe of interest !!  :D

from The Whitehaven Herald and Cumberland Advertiser, Tuesday 25 Oct 1836 -

An accident of a very dangerous nature occurred at Mr. Ord's amphitheatre, in this town, on Tuesday night last, during the performance of an equestrian feat, entitled, "The Courier of St. Petersburgh." In the course of the act, Mr. McCoutts, who personated a character in the representation, had occasion to discharge a pistol, which he attempted once or twice unsuccessfully; however, the piece had merely "hung fire," and ultimately exploded and burnt, severely mutilating Mr. McCoutts's hand, though, perhaps, not to the extent which might have been expected. He is, we believe, at present doing well. Happy, thrice happy, should we have been had this awkward affair terminated here; but our filial affection induces us to relate what further ensued. A near and dear relative of our's- our revered Grandmother- on the evening in question, the entertainment being for the benefit of Mr. Ord.- ("birds of a feather," you know)- had, unfortunately, attended the amphitheatre, and being seated in the most conspicuous part of the side gallery, one of the detached pieces from the exploded pistol of Mr. McCoutts, passed close by the old lady's head- so near, that considerable alarm was felt for her safety. She was unhurt! Merciful goodness! had she been killed!- what individual in the town, or whatever grade or profession, but would have rejoiced at- tut!- we mean to say, but would have deplored her irreparable loss. But she is yet alive, and well; and what individual in the town, of whatever grade or profession, but may know it- even ere this day's sun shall have set! The old lady, we understand, is more than usually garrulous on the subject, and relates the incident with something of exultation. Truly, she hath escaped many imminent perils- divers kickings and floggings, for instance; but to have been "nearly shot," as she expresses herself!- the very idea has something martial in it; it smacks of the heroic; and our Grandmother, in her doting, now that she has escaped unhurt, really considers herself quite an Amazon. We must repeat that the amusements on the above ebening were for the benefit of Mr. Ord; the house was a good one, and most substantially indicated the sense the Whitehaven people have of Mr. O.'s individual merits as an equestrian, as well as of the spirited manner in which he caters for the public entertainment. The corps, equestrian and dramatic, has lately been largely reinforced, and now forms a strong and really talented muster.

Advert for the performance, from the Herald, 18 Oct -
Is fixed for this Evening, TUESDAY, the 18th Oct.
On which occasion Mr. Ord will appear in Six entirely New Scenes in the Circle.


The Scenes in the Circle will commence with the Eastern Pantomimical Representation of the
CARNIVAL AT VENICE: or, a Masquerade on Horseback,
Will go through their astonishing Performances.
By Mr. Frost.
By the celebrated Storette.
The Entertainments of the Circle to conclude with, for the first time here,
The Emperor Nicholas's Despatches to the Sultan:
Or, Robber's Scene in Petersburgh.

Boxes, 3s; Pit, 2s; Gallery, 1s. Half Price at a Quarter before Nine o'Clock.
Doors to be opened at Half past Six, and the Performance to commence at Seven precisely.
The above is only a selection of the promised attractions. These old circus adverts are so wordy, you could almost use them as song lyrics...
