Catherine Swayne Drewry - Probate

George Henry Cooper (brother)

"George Henry Cooper was a sporting all-rounder. He was founder President of Wincanton Cricket Club, was involved in the early days of steeple-chasing at Wincanton, played tennis, thought nothing of riding his racing cycle to Yeovil and back and went either hunting, shooting or fishing almost daily, but above all, he was a methodical diarist who recorded his energetic and colourful life in minute daily detail. ... Born in 1846 in Lovington, near Wincanton, Somerset, Cooper was the son of solicitor Edward Yalden Cooper, who had a practice in both Wincanton and Salisbury, and Elizabeth Cooper (née Swayne) of The Island House, Wilton. .. he entered his father's practice in South Street, Wincanton .."
