512. John COPPOCK(9)
was born in 1636. He died on Dec 31 1709. Coppocks come from England,
in the area surrounding Chester. Their names appear in many documents in the
parishes of Wilmslow and Mobberly beginning in the 16th century. Cheshire and
Lancashire records show COPPOCK men to have been skinners, tanners, slaters,
plasterers, barbers, weavers, apothecaries, tobacconists, farmers, and yeomen
(small land owners). The name was consistently spelled COPPOCKE until the mid-17th
century when the terminal "e" disappeared and the name settled into
COPPOCK, which it has remained.
Fifteenth and sixteenth century English records yield more COPPOCKS than we can possibly sort out. However, we can be relatively certain of the name of the father of the first American COPPOCK. He was John Coppock of Mobberly, where he was born about 1636, and died December 31,1709. He may be the John Coppock who was baptized in Wilmslow on August 17, 1636, the son of Bartholomew COPPOCK and Margerie WHELTON. It is certain that he married Susann LOWE at Mobberly on June 4, 1662. she was born about 1632, and buried October 18, 1684 in Mobberly. The Mobberly christening book records five births to the couple. He was married to Susan LOWE on Jun 4 1662.
