COPLEY of Arnold, Nottinghamshire

COPLEY of Arnold, Nottinghamshire

Classification: Query
Surnames: Copley
I'm looking for information about the Copley side of my family who lived mostly in Arnold, Nottinghamshire, but also including Bulwell, Daybrook, and Hucknall Torkard. Below is a descendancy tree that I have starting from William and Ann. (My great-grandmother is Fanny Copley shown very near the bottom of the list - 4th generation from William and Ann).

I'm stuck at William and Ann. I've seen records of a William Copley married to Ann Whittington, but I don't think that is the same Ann for my family. When I search the baptismal records for children, I find quite a few names of which I can only tie census records to the William with the profession of Labourer for my Copley family. So, I think there were 2 William and Ann Copley families. I've copied the list of those baptism records below as well.

Any help on William and Ann would be greatly appreciated. Would also love to communicate with anyone related to those in my tree below.

First, thanks for your reply to my post on Gervase COPLEY's marriage in 1730. Your data sometimes matches what I have but some is new. I had been through the Plumtree parish records,and thought I had everyone, so it's going to need a little digesting.

More intriguingly, your data here may partly tie in with my tree.

My COPLEY line runs back in East Stoke from the 1841 census to about 1778. An aspect I have never been able to resolve is the presence of Maria, Abigail, Harriett, Caroline COPLEY as visitors in East Stoke in the census. I had found William / Ann as parents for them and the Arnold christenings, but could not see if that William fits into my tree. However the people they are visiting (COOPER) and another name in the same house (PADGETT) do feature in my ancestry. As it was a sideline, I'd left it.

If we can link your William back into my side, I have data back to 1600 in Plumtree, and then a link back to Yorkshire and potentially back to about 1400.

I've struggled trying to find a reason for the girls being in East Stoke in 1841 too. It's interesting - I have a record of 8 children. Jane died young in 1837. The other 4 girls are found in East Stoke in 1841. Ann and 2 of the younger boys, Robert and Charles, are found still in Arnold in 1841. I find 2 census records for a Joseph Copley, the oldest boy, but I can't determine which one is mine. (Joseph is my direct ancestor), but I can't find William anywhere, nor in any year thereafter. I assumed that he passed away prior to 1841, but I cannot find a death record either.

It would make sense if William did die prior to 1841, because would have meant Ann would have been struggling financially, especially with her large family. 15 year old Joseph goes off to work to help out (both census records have Joseph Copley, age 15, as a lodger), baby Charles stays at home obviously, Robert is 9, but in those days, boys that age often went to work to help out at home, and the girls are sent to relatives/friends who can afford to keep them? Anyway, that was my supposition.

Of the 4 girls, I can only follow Maria - she married George Leverton. I can't find anything else on the others past the 1841 census.

As I mentioned, Joseph is my direct ancester, so I have lots of info on that line, and I've been able to find quite a bit on Charles. He married Ellen Shetliffe (many variations on the spelling of her last name: Shotliffe/Shetlife/Sutcliffe, etc).

Feel free to contact me directly at lcaron0822@rogers.com to share more info.

Thanks!
