Notes for Margaret CROPPER
Contents of an E-mail from Caspar Verney March 2010

It is a few years since we last corresponded (see below), however I thought you might be interested to hear of a new snippet that I have just been sent.
One of my Cropper cousins has sent me a text written by Eliza Conybeare, mother of Rev. John William Edward Conybeare who married Frances Anne Cropper (both of whom are within your database). It discusses the character of Frances Anne's grandmother, Mrs Anne Cropper, nee Wakefield, and in it there is reference to Anne Cropper's youngest daughter, Margaret, who is your direct ancestor:
"We came to Liverpool on our marriage in 1843, and your Grandfather and Grandmother Mr [John] and Mrs. [Anne] Cropper, and your Uncle Edward Cropper received us as old family friends and made us welcome, and with unfailing kindness...
She [Mrs Anne Cropper] loved the ways of little children. Her youngest, Margaret, was 5 years old when we first became intimate at Dingle Bank. Her mother's pleasure was to teach her little hymns and poems to repeat to my husband on our Saturday visits. I can see her now seated on his knee saying her verses in her attractive childish tones, and her mother’s looks of amusements or gratification.
(Opp. page added by Eliza: The poem of 'The Spider and The Fly' was once delivered with great effect.')
This little Margaret was long left the only child at home when the others were all dispersed. There was a peculiarly tender tie between her and her mother. "
I hope that you will enjoy this small but rather personal contribution about one of your direct forebears.

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. 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."
