Francis Cooper & Sarah Booth Family of Baildon

8 Mar

Francis Cooper married Sarah Booth on 13 OCT 1815 in Baildon, West Riding Yorkshire, England at St. John the Evangelist Church. Francis died 18 JAN 1850 in Baildon with burial at St. John the Evangelist Church. Sarah died prior to 1841 (she is missing from the 1841 England Census and Francis is listed as a widower.)

Here is their marriage record:

Francis Cooper & Sarah Booth

Francis and Sarah had eight children that I can figure at this time:

1) Francis Booth was born 23 APR 1815 in Baildon. He was born out of wedlock to Sarah Booth, prior to her marriage to his father, Francis Cooper. He was married to Sarah Ward (1820 – ?) on 13 AUG 1837 in Baildon at St. John the Evangelist Church. He was also married to Mary Wood on 2 JAN 1870 in Bradford at St. Peter’s Cathedral. Please note that Francis Booth listed his father as Francis Cooper on his marriage record. This was not that unusual at this time in this region.

2) Benjamin Cooper was born about 1816 in Baildon.

3) Margaret Cooper was born 08 JUL 1817 in Baildon. This is my fourth great-grandmother and you may find other information about her under the tag- Margaret Cooper Ellison Hudson. If you click on PDF below you will see her baptismal record.

5) Thomas Cooper was born about 1820 in Baildon. He married Hannah Moorhouse (1823 – ?) on 17 NOV 1842 in Otley at the All Saints Church, Yorkshire. He died about 1887 in Baildon with burial at St. John the Evangelist. It appears that Thomas and Hannah had at least nine children: Booth (1884 – ?), Mary Ann (1846 – ?), George (1848 – ?), Joshua (1851 – ?), Thomas (1854 – ?), Alfred S. (1856 – ?), Richard (1857 – ?), Henry M. (1865 – ?), and Emily (1875 -?)

He was married on 25 MAY 1843 in Bingley at the All Saints Church to Ellen Cockshott (1822 – ?) and he died APR 1860 in Bingley with burial at All Saints. It appears that Samuel and Ellen had at least two children: Henry (1848 – ?) and Mary (1850 – ?).

7) Sarah Ann Cooper was born about 1826 in Baildon. She was married on 28 JAN 1850 to Francis Wilks (1825 – ?) in Bradford at St. Peter’s Cathedral in Yorkshire. In 1881, Sarah Ann was listed on the Pudsey, Yorkshire Census. It appears that Francis and Sarah Ann had at least four children: William (1854 – ?), Dawnbough (1859 – ?), Joseph (1863 – ?) and Sarah Hannah (1866 – ?).

8) Mary Ann Cooper was born 01 AUG 1832 in Baildon and died at the age of one on 16 MAY 1834 in Baildon with burial at St. John the Evangelist Church.

William Hudson Naturalization Record

3 Mar

The Cuyahoga County Archives was kind enough to send me a scan of the Naturalization Record for William Hudson. William Hudson was Margaret Ellison’s second husband and the step-father of Mary Maria and Benjamin Walker Ellison and father of Annie, Emma & Elizabeth Hudson.

You will note that the record reads as follows:

William Hudson Arrived in NY September 1848

     England      Filed Feb 24, 1855

                       Cef Nat Feb (28) T??? 1857   28-534

This tells us that the Hudson’s arrived in Cleveland, Ohio by February 24, 1855. They were listed on the 1850 US Census in Wheeling, West Virginia (Virginia at that time).

Hudson’s naturalization granted citizenship also to Margaret, his wife and his children.

Benjamin and Mary Maria Ellison Family of Baildon, Yorkshire, England

24 Feb

Whatever happened to Walker Ellison’s family?

Walker Ellison was the son of Benjamin Ellison and Mary Maria Ambler of Baildon, West Riding Yorkshire. He was born on 31 AUG 1818 in Birstall, Yorkshire, England and was christened on 1 NOV 1818 at St. Peter’s Parish Church in Birstall.

On 11 NOV 1838 he married Margaret Cooper at the All Saint’s Church in Otley, Yorkshire. Walker and Margaret had two children: Mary Maria (1839-1909) and Benjamin Walker (1841-1913). Walker and Margaret are my 4th great-grandparents. Walker died on 31 MAR 1841 in Linton-on-Ouse, Easingwold, Yorkshire, England and is supposedly buried there. I have as of yet found his will. Walker was recorded as having been a wool sorter.

Benjamin Ellison was married on 13 AUG 1810 at St John the Evangelist Church in Baildon, Yorkshire to Mary Maria Ambler, the daughter of John Ambler (1757-1831) and Hannah Walker. Walker then was named after his paternal grandmother’s family name. Unfortunately, Mary Maria died shortly after having her last child on 25 MAR 1829 and she is buried, along with Benjamin, at St. Wilfrid’s Church in Burnsall and you can read their monument inscription here: http://www.burnsall.bradford.anglican.org/monuments.htm. Mary Maria was born 18 FEB 1786 in Baildon and was baptized on 19 FEB 1786 at St. John the Evangelist Church in Baildon. Mary Maria is descended from the wealthy Ambler family of Baildon. Benjamin was listed as being a bookkeeper and also often a gentleman on vital records.

The children of Mary Maria and Benjamin Ellison:

  1. Hannah Maria Margaret  (1811 – ?)
  2. William  (1813 – ?)
  3. Frances Rebecca (1814 – 1889)
  4. John (1815 – 1816)
  5. Benjamin Ambler  (1816 – ?)
  6. Walker (1818 – 1841)
  7. Christiana Sarah Alice (1821 – 1892)
  8. Peter Charles James (1823 – 1880)
  9. Jeremiah Thomas (1825 – 1844)
  10. Mary Martha (1828 – 1889)

1) Hannah Maria Margaret Ellison was born 30 JUN 1811 in Birstall, Yorkshire. She was married on 1 FEB 1830 to James Robinson. I have been unable to locate the Robinson’s in Yorkshire and suspect they immigrated but have been unable to trace them. Annie Hudson, Benjamin Walker Ellison’s half-sister, married Enoch Kimball Robinson (of Massachusetts) and I wonder if there isn’t a connection here. As Annie would not be a blood relation to the Robinson’s but may have met them through Benjamin Walker, a blood relation.

2) William Ellison was baptized on 19 SEP 1813 in Baildon at St. John the Evangelist Church. He was married on 16 MAY 1849 to Elizabeth Grimshaw (1817 – ?) at All Saints Church, Otley, Yorkshire. He is listed on the 1851 England Census in Bradford, Yorkshire on the 1861 Census in Eccleshill, Yorkshire and the 1871 and 1881 Censuses in Manningham, Yorkshire. William and Elizabeth had at least two children: Grimshaw and Mary E.

Grimshaw Ellison was born about 1853 in Bradford and married Mary Alice Walker (1859 – 1945) on 18 NOV 1891 in Baildon at St. John the Evangelist Church. On 27 NOV 1903, at the age of 50, Grimshaw arrived in New York, New York alone, having resided in Baildon as of the 1901 England Census. On 28 SEP 1904, Grimshaw died aboard the Ship Baltic while escorting his wife to America. Mary Alice arrived in New York two days later. She died about 1945 in Baildon. Grimshaw and Mary Alice had at least three children: William (1894 – ?), Mary Doris (1897 – ?) and the Reverend Geoffrey Walker (1898 – 1978).

3) Frances Rebecca Ellison was born 12 MAR 1814 in Birstall, Yorkshire and baptized on 25 MAY 1814 in Birstall at St. Peter’s Church. On the 1861 and 1871 England Census, she is listed in Ripon, Yorkshire and she died 19 DEC 1889 in West Riding Yorkshire. She never married.

4) John Ellison was born JUN 1815 in Baildon and died 10 JAN 1816, buried at St. John the Evangelist, Baildon, Yorkshire.

5) Benjamin Ambler Ellison was born 22 SEP 1816 in Baildon, Yorkshire. He was baptized on 6 APR 1817 in Baildon at St. John the Evangelist Church. On 22 NOV 1841, Benjamin arrived in New York, New York. On 23 MAY 1844, he married Mary Patten at St James Cathedral Anglican Church in Toronto, Canada. He is listed on 1852 and 1861 Canada Census as living in York, Canada West. Benjamin and Mary had at least nine children: Maria (1844 – ?), Susanna (1845 – ?), Alice (1846 – ?), Benjamin Ambler (1848 – 1926), John (1850 – ?), William (1854 – ?), Elizabeth (1866 – ?), Margaret (1868 – ?), and Catherine (1869 – ?). It is Benjamin that was the first emigrant out of Baildon in Walker’s family and it is my guess that he convinced Walker’s widowed wife, Margaret and her new husband William Hudson and his younger sister, Christiana Sarah Alice and her husband Martin Taylor, to leave England.  The Taylor’s lived by the Benjamin Ellison family after their arrival in New York in 1848.

Maria was born in 1844 in Canada. She was married to Thomas Lamb (1835 – ?) on 21 NOV 1865 in Haldimand, Ontario, Canada. The Lamb’s are listed on the 1880 US Census as living in Buffalo, Erie, New York. They had at least three children: William (1868 – ?), Emma (1870 – ?) and Thomas (1874 – ?).

Benjamin Ambler was born in 1848 in Ontario, Canada and was married to Sophia R. Birnie on 19 FEB 1880 in Ontario, Ontario, Canada. He died 8 DEC 1926 in Whitley, Ontario, Canada. They had at least one child: Margaret (1881 – 1945).

John was born 1850 in Canada and was listed on the 1880 US Census as living also in Buffalo, Erie, New York.

7) Christiana Sarah Alice was born about 1821 in Baildon, Yorkshire, England. On 31 MAY 1842, she married Martin Taylor (1819 – 1899) in Otley at the All Saint’s Church. She died on 13 SEP 1892 in Thorah, Ontario, Canada. On 15 SEP 1848, (Christiana Sarah) Alice, Martin and three of their children arrived in New York on the Ship Senator with Margaret and William Hudson and their children – Mary Maria Ellison, Benjamin Walker Ellison, Annie Hudson and Emma Hudson. Martin was a joiner; his father was John Taylor a dyer of Baildon. Alice and Martin Taylor had at least five children, the first three born in England: William (1844 – ?), Jeremiah (1846 – ?), Anne/Hannah (1848 – ?), Alice (1850 – ?), and Ada (1858 – ?). Beginning in 1852, the Taylor family is listed on Canada Censuses as living in York and then in 1871 in Ontario. They lived near Alice’s brother, Benjamin Ambler Ellison.

8) Peter Charles James was born 24 JUL 1823 in Yorkshire, England. He was married to Ann Steel (1825 – ?) on 13 AUG 1844 in Otley at the All Saint’s Church. On the 1851 England Census they are listed in Horton, Yorkshire and on the 1861 Census, in Baildon. On 12 SEP 1867, Peter arrived with his son Charles Steel in New York, New York, and he died 27 JUN 1880 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Peter and Ann had at least five children: Margaret (1846 – ?), Sophia (1849 – 1862), Alice (1850 – ?), Charles Steel (1853 – ?) and Emily (1855 – ?).

Charles Steel Ellison was born about 1853 in Bradford, Yorkshire, England. On the 1880 US Census he is listed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

9) Jeremiah Thomas Ellison was born 18 OCT 1825 in Yorkshire, England and died at 19 years of age on 24 NOV 1844 in Baildon, with burial at St. John the Evangelist.

10) Mary Martha Ellison was born 18 AUG 1828 in Burnsall, Yorkshire, England. She was married to Edward Poole Fearnley (1819 – ?) on 29 DEC 1849 in Baildon at St. John the Evangelist Church. On the 1851 England Census, they are listed in Shipley, Yorkshire and on the 1861 and 1871, they are in Bradford, Yorkshire. Mary Martha died in JUL 1889 in West Riding Yorkshire. Mary and Edward had at least four children: Samuel (1850 – ?), Alice (1853 – ?), Kate (1856 – ?), and Ellen (1858 – ?).

Woodland Cemetery Restoration Efforts

The Woodland Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio where Margaret Cooper Ellison Hudson and her husband William Hudson are buried is in dire need of restoration in certain areas, including a mausoleum that has fallen down and is in threat of city removal.

Also buried with Margaret and William Hudson are two of Benjamin Walker Ellison’s infant children, a boy and girl. All of the graves are unmarked, with no grave markers or tombstones.

The Woodland Cemetery is a historic cemetery and worthy of our efforts and funds to preserve it for the future. Won’t you consider making a tax-deductible donation in honor of Margaret and William Hudson? Or in honor of your ancestors?

87,794 people are buried at Woodland Cemetery, beginning in 1853.
