Please post your query to the most appropriate message board.

In this case, Cornwall in England seems far more relevant than Lanarkshire in Scotland.

Thank you.

I realise this was posted some time ago but hope yo'll get the reply. The Popplestones originate mainly from Devon and Cornwall but at least one branch of the family moved to Yorkshire in the early 1800s. That branch were woolcombers and I guess they moved when the traditional methods of production started to die out.

I had a gg grandmother Agness Popplestone born in Loddiswell Devon about 1804. She married John Sampson and they had nine children. At least 3 of the children immigrated to Australia in the 1860's. Unfortunately I don't know much about the Popplestones but there was certainly a lot of them in Loddiswell at the time.

Hi

My maternal grandmother was Lucy Popplestone, she came from Hampshire UK. She was born in 1866. Her father was Thomas Popplestone born in 1833 from Salisbury Wiltshire UK. The family did originate from Kingsbridge Devonshire I think.

I hope this is helpful. I have some photos if you would be interested.

Regards

Erica.
