???? - 1797
Andrew Livett, personal representative of Mary Cooper widow late of Bristol, counterclaimed for the compensation for the enslaved people on Sion Hill in Antigua. This has been tentatively identified as the Mary Cooper whose will was proved 18/05/1797. In the will she makes no reference to Antigua, but left property in South Carolina to her grand-children, the children of her daughter Eliza and Elias van der Horst. The connection of Mary Cooper of Bristol with Sion Hill is supported by the fact that Mary Cooper's grand-daughter Mary Cooper Taylor was the wife of John Duncombe Taylor, the owner of Sion Hill in the 1830s.
