The certificate of removal issued by the meeting in England to which he and his family belonged has been preserved and is as follows:

Whereas Wm Cooper of Coleshill in ye parish of Amersham of ye County of Hertfordshire have signified unto us that he hath an intention if the Lord permit to transplant himself with his wife and children into ye plantation of New West Jersey and hath desired a testimonial from this meeting for ye satisfaction of Friends there and elsewhere unto whom he may be outwardly unknown. We therefore whose names are underwritten do certify all whom it may concern that the said Wm Cooper and Margaret his wife having lived in these parts for many years ever since ye first of their convincement have walked conscientiously honestly amongst us agreeably to ye profession and testimony of trust according to ye best of our observation and knowledge of them. In witness thereof we have herewith set our hands this fifth day of ye twelfth month 1678.

From a monthly meeting at Coleshill aforesaid.

The foregoing copy was written by and sent to Caroline Packer Sargent by Mrs. Annie Cooper Lippincott of Rivertown, New Jersey, January 28, 1894.
