I have been looking for quite a while for a birth for William Alfred Copeman who may fit the bill for my husband's grandfather. He married Clara Digby in 1904 in Hellesdon,nr Norwich, father given as William Copeman, labourer. Might he be one of yours'??

Thanks for replying. The William I am looking for is William Alfred Copeman who married Clara Digby in 1904 and gives his age as 27 - bachelor, father William. If this age is correct he should have been born about 1876/7. I did find the Wreningham birth but the second name of Alfred is not on the certificate. I also found a William Copeman aged 21 on the 1901 census at Colchester Army Barracks. He was a Private and single. Is this yours?
I am actually wondering if my William was registered at all! I would have thought he might have come from Norwich or vicinity. His son, Richard is still alive and did find where he is buried in Norwich cemetery but does not appear to have any paperwork regarding his father. 'Uncle' Dick is his youngest son.
best wishes
Pat

Hi Susan

I did not put this into my previous message but the interesting thing about your information was the two sons, William and Alfred. it would seem reasonable for another child in the next generation to be called by both names, William Alfred, as in my quest. Have you looked up any baptismal records at all. It occurred to me that this may be slightly different to the registered birth. Would be great if it was wouldn't it?

Hi Helen
Your Susan Copeman was living in Wreningham along side my Copeman family but as yet I have found no connection between them. However I have forwarded a copy of your message onto a David Rawlings - I believe he is also descendant of Jeremiah Thomson and Susan Copeman.
He has details of Thomas' parents and grandparents!
I have a copy of all the Copeman's listed in Wreningham in the 1851 census - there were quite a few of them.
You might be interested to know that a Susan Copeman aged 78 was living with her son-in-law Jeremiah Thompson in 1851.
You may also wish to look up a book called 'Past-times at Wreningham' by Basil Day. Mr Day's family were from Wreningham and his book lists all the gravestones in Wreningham church and has information on all of the families living there in the mid-late 1800's.
Hope this helps. Susan

Hi Susan,

A voice from the past! I have laid off research for some time and am now back with a vengenance! If I have not replied earlier many many apologies. I have been on another website recently, RootsChat and a gentleman there told me about the book but it's now out of print. Apparently there's a fair bit of info thjat would help me. He said he would email me but as yet has not.

I am now trying to collate all the info I have gathered and put it into some sort of order.

Many belated thanks again for your reply.

Regards

Helen Knox
