Hiya Waikiwi

Welcome to RootsChat bit short on data there - when and where did he marry Hannah? if it was after 1837 we might find his fathers name also where have you got Hannah's maiden name from to see if we can dig up some further clues

Thanks for your prompt reply.  I havenít any idea about the marriage date, from what I have is they had a son, my 2nd Gt Grandfather Henry Cooper b 1837 d 1914 in Orepuki, New Zealand, no idea of any other family.   Henry married Ann Harper b1834 and she died in Orepuki, NZ in 1900. Henry and Ann immigrated to New Zealand on the Lancashire Witch in 1876. With their three children Elizabeth, Mary Ann and my Grandfather George Cooper.
I believe Robert Cooper travelled either to New Zealand and Australia on The Lady Jocelyn.  There seems to be another son of Roberts called Edward b 1850. 
I cannot find anything about Elizabeth and Mary Ann, just wondering if the travelled back to England. Thank you.
