COOPER - Brentford Help Needed !

Posted: 1354329906000
Classification: Query
Hi All,
I need help on the following.. any assistance much appreciated..
My direct ancestor..
Frederick COOPER – Convict to VDL- AU via Aroara1
Convict record states.. Born Brentwood Eng. Father William – occupation Costermonger (fruit & Veg seller) brothers William & Henry sisters Caroline & Betsey..
Death entry states father William mother Jane. Born c 1818
I have located his parents 1841 Census living High Street Old Brentford
William b MX c 1776 – Costermonger
Jane b c 1786
I have not found a marriage for William & Jane although William may have been previously married to Mary and had son William b 1814 Old Brentford married Jane Pound no children.
I have found the birth for the following children to them
Ann Cooper – b 11/11/1815 died 1816
Frederick COOPER b 1817 Brenford (my ancestor)
Caroline COOPER b 1819 d 1889
Ann the first born has died as an infant which leaves Wiiliam listed above.
Caroline I found living next door to her parents in 1841 she married Solomon HALL had children Charles Hall b 1841 Ann Sarah Hall b 1843
Then in various census records she has children listed under HALL or Harper and she becomes Mrs Thomas Millard whom she marries in 1866

The 1891 census lists Charles Hall aged 50 listed as a nephew to William Cooper Caroline’s elder brother..

I have not been able to locate Betsy or Henry whom were obviously still living 1835 when Frederick listed them on his convict record…
I have found most of the info through various census and BDM’s listed Ealing, West Twyford & Isleworth.. Can anyone assist me in sorting this out ?
