Cooper Family Crest
Cooper Family Crest

The Cooper family in Ireland was founded by Edward Cooper, a Cornet in Richard Collooney's regiment of dragoons. Having settled in Sligo, he became possessed of a large estate. His will, dated the 20th December, 1679, was proved on the 5th Janua4ry, 1680. His son Arthur Cooper of Markree Castle, Do. Sligo, had two sons and five daughters. The third daughter was Anne, who married John Perceval, of Temple House, Co.Sligo, on the 7th Octber, 1772. She is doubtless the Nancy Cooper of Carolan's song.
