Henry Cooper

IGI lists 3 Henry Coopers baptised in Wolverhampton around this time:

15 OCT 1826 Saint Peter Or Collegiate, Wolverhampton, Stafford, England
Parents Richard and Elizabeth Cooper

29 SEP 1827 Saint Peter Or Collegiate, Wolverhampton, Stafford, England
Parents: Henry and Martha Cooper

30 NOV 1830 Saint Peter Or Collegiate, Wolverhampton, Stafford, England
Parents: John and Sarah Cooper

Given the forenames of the children I have assumed the 1830 birth is the right one.

Buried at St John's Wednesbury is a COOPER THOMAS 56 18 January 1879
Don't know if it's connected.


Ivy Hall

John Hawker, brother of George,Tom, Glad and Anne, told Graham George Hawker that Ivy initially married Cecil Hawker and then later married Frank Clarke. He didn't remember whether Cecil died or whether there was a divorce.
The marriage certificate of Ivy and Frank would resolve this.
On 17 February 2002 Graham George Hawker received an email from Jean Wint, which stated:
"Just had a fascinating time looking through the Hawker family information - my husband
(Ronald Wint) recognised his father Harold Wint with daughter Marjory in one of the unknown photos which was thought to be Thomas Hawker and Lilian. ... The photo of the young sailor which is thought to be Robert Hawker, Ron says is Roy, the son of Arthur Cecil and Ivy Hall. Roy was a submariner. Another query was whether Ivy Hall & Cecil divorced or Cecil died. Ron says they divorced."

Information sent to Graham Hawker by Nikki Lester in Septemeber 2008:
After Frank Clarke died, Ivy lived with Babs (Victoria Hawker, nee Hancock) at Coppice Farm,Teddesley and in Penkridge Staffs until she became ill and moved into a home.


Daniel Shakespeare

Jean Tomkins (nee Hawker) in a letter to George and Rubbinnia Hawker dated 16 February 1992, states there is a will of Daniel Shakespeare dated 1882.


Luke Shakespeare

Email from Colin and Stella Smith on 15 April 2002 to Graham George Hawker states:
It seems that we have common interest in the Shakespeare clan, my mother Joan (nee
Shakespeare) , father was John 1890- 1976
His father Daniel 1856 - 1950 ,Dudley,Worcester.
His father Daniel 1827 - ? , " "
His father James 1808 - 1848
This info came from my mother, who lives in Yorkshire and seems too much to be just
coincidence .

This was then confirmed in an email on 6 May 2002 which states:
We have been in touch with colin's Mum and she confirms that the Daniel Shakespeare you
have on your family tree is her grandfather.

There are only a couple of things that she told us though, which differ from your pedigree.
On the 1861 census it shows Daniel Shakespeare living in Dudley, with wife Eliza (Price), son
James age 10, daughter Cecila (?) age 6, son Daniel age 4. Daniel had four brothers, James,
John, Aaron and Luke.

Aaron and his wife Esther and their adult daughter Esther and her son Bernard Moore went to
America on the Campania in February 1907. They settled in Pittsburgh. (I have photos of
Esther and her daughter and g/son, also of Bernard when they were in America and Esther jnr
when she joined the Salvation Army which I have sent you.)

John went to Toronto about 1885. He married Francis Moore. they moved to Illinois where
their children were born. Haden 1889, Frances 1894, Leslie 1896 and Don 1899. I will send
you a transcript of the Family History of John Shakespeare as written by Tom Stobbs,
Grandson of Daniel,m as soon as I can.

Daniel went to America for a short time, but found that the ups and downs of life there did not
suit him and he returned to England. He married Ann Burns in 1890 but she died in 1895,
possibly in childbirth. He remarried Elizabeth Perry and they had one daugher Miriam. Ann
and Daniel had John, Catherine, & Alice. As far as Colin's Mum knows he did not have any
other children, so we don't believe that Cecil and Ivy were his. Possibly the inscription on the
back of the photo was correct and they belong to Daniel Clarke.


William Clarke

In August 2000 there were omly 2 Clarkes living in Mountsorrel. They were cousins and were unable to help with my research.

Work done on this line by Jean Tomkins (nee Hawker) up to 1992 and contained in a letter she wrote to George and Rbbinia Hawker dated 16 February 1992 show the parents of William (husband of Rebecca Hadley) to be John Clarke and Ann (nee Swain).


Rebecca Hadley

This line has not yet been fully researched. From the IGI it appears possible that the parents of William Clarke, husband of Rebecca Hadley, were William and Elizabeth. Work done on this line by Jean Tomkins (nee Hawker) up to 1992 and contained in a letter she wrote to George and Rbbinia Hawker dated 16 February 1992 show the parents of William (husband of Rebecca Hadley) to be John Clarke and Ann (nee Swain). The work of Jean Tomkins has been added to the current research separately and there are therefore two different entries for the family of William Clarke and Rebecca Hadley, awaiting definitive evidence.

Note on Warley Wigorn:
Warley Civil Parish was formed in 1884 by the union of Warley
Salop and parts of Warley Wigorn, Ridgeacre and Oldbury civil
parishes. Warley Salop is that part of Warley which was in
Shropshire until 1844.
Warley Wigorn is that part of Warley which remained in
Worcestershire.

Also found at Kates Hill Dudley in the 1851 census (Piece 2033/Folio 273/Schedule 177) were:
James Hadley aged 23 with his wife Mary Ann aged 20 and their son James aged 1. Unfortunately, no place of birth is shown for James senior so I don't know if he is the brother of Rebecca.
