I am interested in particular in the large family of William Joseph Coplestone who was born in 1789 in Devon.He married twice, first Ann Bond and then Harriet Elizabeth Palmer.
William Joseph's parents were the splendidly named Azeal Coplestone and Bathsheba Palmer (sounds like something out of Thomas Hardy!).
This connection leads back to the 1400s in the Devon area.
