According to a surname project based at the University College in London the surname of Cooper comes from an English occupation and being an occupational surname makes Cooper fairly common name in Norfolk and in many other counties making it difficult to trace families.

No baptism has yet been found for John Cooper. There are four burials in Beetley registers that may be of interest. These were possibly all adults: Edmund Cooper 1763, Mary Cooper 1763, George Cooper 1764 and William Cooper 1796. There is a will left by the George Cooper dated 1764 and an administration bond for the Edmund Cooper dated 1763, both were of Beetley. These are still to be looked at. William Cooper, of Beetley, a farmer, was involved in a mortgage dated 1770. All papers should be at the Norwich Record Office.
