I am looking for details of a Thomas Copeman who married Adelaide Tummons around the early 1860’s. Thomas was probably born around the early 1830’s. Thomas and Adelaide had 5 children-William, Polly, Thomas (born 30/8/1868 in Knottingley, Yorkshire), Richard and Robert. The Tummons were also from Knottingley.
Thomas was Captain of a ship which foundered off the Farne Islands around 1878 and he lost his life along with the cabin boy and maybe others. The cabin boy was his eldest son William.
I have not found any Copemans in Yorkshire around these dates so far, all the Copemans seem to be from Norfolk. Can anyone supply a link.
