Can anyone PLEASE help with locating any information on the following and hopefully a male descendant of the following COOPER line from Virginia?
Virginia patents and grants, as well as several other records suggest that a Fleet COOPER, most likely was born in southeastern Virginia. It could be that he was the same Fleet COOPER of NANSEMOND COUNTY, VA, who sold land along the Blackwater River on 9 Mar 1757 which he purchased in
Feb 1745. There also is record of a Fleet COOPER living in ELIZABETH CITY COUNTY, VA, who was fined by the Court 19 February 1718 for failing to attend church. Also in ELIZABETH CITY COUNTY a Fleet COOPER witnessed the
will of Robert BRIGHT on 19 Jan 1723/23. In 1645 or 1646 the SW portion of ELIZABETH CITY COUNTY became NANSEMOND COUNTY. Possibly these two Fleet COOPERs living fairly close related. Earlier Virginia records link the "widow FLEET" and a Jno. COOPER and his wife as grantors in a 1675
GLOUCHESTER COUNTY deed. This indicates a possible FLEET and COOPER connection. Other YORK COUNTY, VA, records indicate connections between a widow, Anne FLEETE, and John COOPER, her attorney. These documents were recorded between 1665 and 1672.
