Re: My Family Background

Hello

I have recently started tracing my family line and would be grateful if you have any references which might help. My great grandfather was a William James Copp (a Joiner) who was born in Exmouth, Devon in June 1852. He married a Sarah Jane Wendon (who was born in Tywardreath, Cornwall)in Cardiff, Glamorgan in June 1875. Their first son (William Charles)was born in Cardiff in March 1876, after which they moved to Salford, Manchester where thay had another 9 children. Our particular line of the family has remained in the Manchester area. My father remembers visiting relatives in Exmouth when he was very young, but his own father died when he was only 9 and we have lost contact with that side of the family. It seems that there were quite a number of Copps in the Littleham/Exmouth area and I am very interested in tracing the line back from there.
Any information would be gratefully received.

Regards

Simon Copp
