Lady Elizabeth Cooper (1816–1906)

A cable was received in Sydney yesterday announcing the death on Monday of Lady Cooper, widow of the late Sir Daniel Cooper, who passed away at her late residence. Do Vore Gardens, London, in her 91st year. Lady Cooper was formerly Miss Elizabeth Hill, a member of a well-known family in Sydney, and during her residence here she enjoyed the respect and confidence of a large circle of friends, most of whom have passed away. The late Lady Cooper was of a benevolent nature, and many old residents still remember her for her kindly disposition. For about 45 years she and her late husband resided in London, where Sir Daniel Cooper for some years acted as Agent General for New South Wales. The deceased lady leaves two sons and five daughters. One son is Sir Daniel Cooper, Bart., and the other Mr. William Charles Cooper.
