Last Edited: 5 Jan 2019
  • Birth*: William Couper was born on 1 May 1797 at Peterhead, Scotland.1
  • Baptism: He was baptized on 7 May 1797 at Old Deer Parish, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.2
  • Marriage*: He married Margaret Stephen on 18 April 1819 at Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.3
  • Immigration*: William Couper and Margaret Stephen immigrated in 1842 to Hong Kong Colony. It is fairly certain that Margaret also went to Hong Kong as she is mentioned in newspaper accounts of William's disappearance in 1856. It can be assumed that at least the younger members of the rest of the family also went at this time. Although it seems John Cardno joined his father sometime after his move.4
  • Employment*: William Couper was employed by the P&O Company to supervise the docking and repairing of coastal steamers in 1842 at Hong Kong Colony.4
  • Anecdote*: Articles in a number of British newspapers probably originating from the China Mail and Hong Kong Register reported that on the evening of the 20th December Mr Cowper sen (William Couper), father of Mr Cowper (John Cardno Couper) shipbuilder of Whampoa was kidnapped by a party of Chinese.

    While walking with his wife on the deck of his houseboat (called a chop) he was pulled into a sampan and taken up river. He was never seen or heard of again.

    Various reports ensued alleging that he may have been held in Canton for ransom although this was denied by a Chinese Hong Merchant and no evidence has come to light to substantiate this.5,6
  • Death*: He died on 20 December 1856 at Canton, China, at age 59 The London Standard reported on 2 March 1857 "Nothing whatever has as yet been ascertained about Mr. Cowper, sen., of Whampoa, Kidnapped by Chinese on the evening of the 20th of December."1,7
  • Anecdote: The Newcastle Courant reports " No trace has been obtained of Mr. Cowper who was kidnapped at Whampoa."8
