My great-grandad, Thomas Copeman (born 9th Aug. 1868) was a merchant seaman from somewere around Yorkshire, who married a lady from Newfoundland called Elizibeth Gambel (ne. Gabriel born 6th Jan. 1878, father: Rev. Alfred Edmund Gabriel, mother: Elizibeth Huxtable) and moved to Grangemouth (near Edinburgh). They had nine children: William, Edwin, Adalaid (who went back to Newfoundland), Helen, Thomas, Herbert, Elizibeth, Leonard (my grandad who moved down to Suffolk), and Evelin.
If anyone can tell me anything about Thomas, or Elizibeth's family in Newfoundland I would be most interested.
