East Sussex Map

The Copper family lived in East Blatchington, East Sussex.


First Branch Generation
AG1 - WW Coper and Unknown 1594 - 1615
It is not known what the initials WW stand for but an educated guess at one of them being William or Wylliam might prove correct. WW was born in 1594, as was his wife, although I could find no trace of her name. No date for the marriage was found, and only one child was found, Wylliam, born in 1615.

Wylliam continues the ancestral line down.
