    Do you know the maiden name for your Ellen Hooper.

    The maiden name for Ellen Hooper b Ireland according to GRO for children Mary and Patrick
    is Minchene/Minnihan.

    So Val's post could be your couple. The mother's maiden name for at least one of the children is also Minihan according to GRO.

    May have found a possibility for Stephen William Hooper the eldest son. In 1871 he is with his mother and sisters at Grays Inn Rd, St Pancras RG10 Piece 217 Folio 75 Page 55, listed as Stephen.

    In 1881 he is with William, Ellen and siblings at 72 Bemerton Street, Islington and he is a Portmanteau Maker RG 11 Piece 237 Folio 96 Page 56.

    In 1901 he is with his wife Eliza and daughter Eliza at 3 Half Moon Crescent, Islington a Portmanteau Maker RG13 Piece 184 Folio 100 Page 14 and he says he is born in Kent

    So this is the possible.....In 1861 in Goudhurst, Kent there is a William Stevens Thorn, Grandson, born 1859 Islington and he is a visitor. There is an Emma Thorn an unmarried daughter, dressmaker.
    Head of household John Thorn a farmer and his wife is Mary Ann. RG09 Piece 508 Folio 48 Page 6.

    There is a William Steven Thorne registered 1859 Q2 1b 515 Clerkenwell no MMN

    William Hooper registered 1874 Q1 1b 56 has MMN Thorne. Unfortunately cannot tie the girls in with MMN Thorne....yet

    But maybe...........

    Have you found everything in the tree?

    Are you still trying to find info about William Cooper himself and what he did as a job?

    I didn't know the maiden name for my Ellen Hooper and the Minchene/Minnihan one did seem to fit the dates, but the Ellen Minnihan who married William Hooper in 1863 was Irish, as was that William Hooper. Here they are in 1891 : https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/...=successSource

    Thank you

    Thank you I'm still wondering where William Hooper was in 1871 and 1861. He's an elusive fellow
