As part of the research for my PhD thesis, I'm trying to track down biographical information about a seventeenth-century English writer called Abiezer Coppe. Pretty much all I know about his family background is that he was born in Warwick (England) in 1619, and that his father's name was Walter. I need to ascertain whether this Walter Coppe (or Copp) was the same man as the Walter Copp b. 1593 who was the son of Thomas Coppe b. 1539 and brother of William Copp b. 1589 - the latter being a name that crops up various people's postings, because William founded an American branch of the family.
Does anyone have anything on Abiezer Coppe they wouldn't mind sharing with me? Even if it's just a stray mention of his name it would be very useful.
