Notes for Frances Anne CROPPER
Email from Caspar Verney March 2010

As a supplementary note to my previous message, I have also just cross-referenced to a book I have called "Dingle Bank, The Home of the Croppers - A Recollection" by Frances Anne Conybeare, published in 1925 (This is held in Liverpool Record Office)

(TCJ has a copy) .

Within is another quote regarding Margaret:
 
"There were plenty of family weddings, for all of the three sons and five daughters of John and Anne Cropper married. Of the daughters three married clergymen, and the second son, John, married Susan, a daughter of Dr. Arnold. For one wedding - that of the youngest daughter, taking place on a lovely day in July - the boys of the Akbar reformatory ship, rowed in to the Dingle shore at the mouth of the sea-wall tunnel and thence ferried the bridal pair across to the Cheshire shore, there to begin their honeymoon. She alone survives of her generation in the beauty of her old age."
