the young squire

Print made by Alfred W. Cooper, active 1850–1901, British, The Young Squire (tail piece), undated, Wood-engraving with hand coloring on moderately thick, slightly textured, cream wove paper, Yale Center for British Art, Paul Mellon Collection recto
Who's The Young Squire?  Is it one of these two, or are they waiting on the young squire to come down?  Why can I find lots of artwork by Alfred W. Cooper (British, d. 1901), and almost no information about him?  By the way, this is a "tail piece," and that's not a pun; a tail piece is a design or illustration at the foot of a page or the end of a chapter or book.
