    Notes 
    • not found in 1841, 1881 census
    • A portrait of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, in the Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution, was once attributed to an amateur artist named Cooper on the strength of the recollections of a Highgate wine merchant, Henry Tatham. However, it should be noted that Tatham did not say that Cooper painted a Coleridge portrait, but rather that he recalled Cooper as having done portraits of Tatham's father and brother.
