First Generation

JAMES COOPER of Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England, born 1661, died December 4, 1732; married (1ˢᵗ) Hester------ (d. 1706) of whom biographical notice in “The Friend,” a Quaker journal, volume 28, page 51 (8 children); married (2d) Mary Borrows, in 1722; (no children). Mary is named in the will of her husband, but was buried with him, on the same day, as shown by the record of Racestreet Meeting, Philadelphia, and the Pennsylvania Gazette of December 7, 1732.

The name of James Cooper as witness is on many deeds recorded at Philadelphia in the course of forty years. He witnessed the will of John Jennings in 1688, but the original is doubtless among papers bearing on a legal contest now pending in England. The actual signature of James Cooper is on the Friends petition of 1694 addressed to William III, King of Great Britain (original in possession of Historical Society of Pennsylvania) and on the original in the Philadelphia Library of another petition, in the year 1710, given at page 29, volume 4, of Hazard’s Register. Also on legal papers of 1698, 1708 and 1723, yet on file at Philadelphia. Arch-street Meeting records him in 1698 as purchaser of the “Old Bank Meeting House” described at page 378, volume 1, of “Watson’s Annals of Philadelphia.” In 1705 he applied to meeting for a certificate when intending to visit Barbadoes, and again in 1714, when he designed to visit New England. In the same records his name appears frequently as witness at marriages.      

Martindale’s History of Byberry st page 46 mentions that James lent £50 to rebuild the meeting house, and was repaid in 1723. In the same history, page 301, he is recorded as a signer of the traveling certificate of a prominent member of Byberry meeting.

During thirty years James was a storekeeper at the northwest corner of Arch street and Second street, Philadelphia. On Arch street his ground extended 455 feet toward Third street, but was only 51 feet deep.

James wrote his will in July 1732. The original (No. 296) is recorded at Philadelphia in Will Book E, page 219. As the will had not been signed, the estate was distributed among heirs by a partition deed, G. 6, page 419, August 2, 1734.

At Trenton, N. J., in Gloucester records, G 1 pages 39-79. Deeds for land September 21 and 22, 1682, from Edward Byllynge, proprietary of West Jersey, to James Cooper, of Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England, “out of ye good will and kindness which for ye truth’s sake he beareth unto ye said James Cooper.”

In 1683 James bought a lot on Chestnut street, Philadelphia (opposite the marble custom house). On October 20, 1685, he sold the Jersey land and settled in Philadelphia. He was of the petit jury in 1686, and foreman of the grand jury in February 1701, O.S., at Philadelphia.

The deed recorded in F 10, page 238, year 1728, recites that the ground on Arch street, thereby conveyed, was bought by James Cooper in 1686 (deed E l, volume 5, page 461). The conveyance is indorsed: “On the 14ᵗʰ day of June, A.D. 1732, came the within named James Cooper, and brought the within written conveyance, which he acknowledged to be his deed,” &c.
