Family History

We have done a lot of work to find our ancestors both in England and Canada. The basic Coppen/Copping family tree is published here. If you find a connection with your family, or would like to enquire further, please contact me via my Blog, and I'll try to get back to you.

There are also pictures of both the Coppen and Wardle families in Canada (my great-grandmother was a Wardle) - including a picture of the 'family mountain' in British Columbia, named after James Morey Wardle, pioneering road builder in the foundation days of the National Parks.

Dick (Richard) Coppen and his brother, Ed(win), both fought for the Canadian Forces in World War I. I have pictures of their service medals and Dick's mention in Despatches - signed by the then Secretary of State for War, Winston S Churchill.
