William Herbert COOPER1

(1870 - 1915)
William Herbert COOPER was born on 8 November 1870 in Plymouth, Devon.2,3

William's marriage to Mabel Kate FERGUSSON, daughter of John FERGUSSON and Jessie Muirhead McFARLANE, was registered between October 1896 and December 1896 in Avon, Bristol.2,4

He was listed in the 1901 census as Head of Family at Stanley Bank in Nether Staveley, Westmorland; a surgeon and physician.
This entry is interesting, as he claims to be single (living with a housekeeper), so it appears doubtful if the recorded 1896 marriage is accurate. Doubly interesting is that the son of William and Mabel (Daniel COOPER) was an avid genealogist, but recorded only the 1896 marriage for his parents.5

William's marriage to Mabel Kate FERGUSSON, daughter of John FERGUSSON and Jessie Muirhead McFARLANE, was registered between October 1901 and December 1901 in Cardiff, Glamorganshire.6

He was listed in the 1911 census as Head of Family at 8 Trewellard, Pendeen St Just in Penzance, Cornwall, with his wife Mabel; he was a medical practitioner. Their children Peter, John and Daniel were listed as living with them.3

William died on 29 November 1915 at his residence 'Highfield' in St Just, Cornwall, at age 45.2,7,8 He was buried on 1 December 1915 at the St Just Church cemetery in St Just.8

His will was probated in Bodmin, Cornwall, on 24 February 1916 with Mabel Kate FERGUSSON appointed executrix along with co-executor Rev Walter Ernest Holme, of an estate valued at £4448/2/4.9
