Chagford

As per Jane Hayter-Hames book, “The History of Chagford”, the cottage known as Bellacouch was said to be built and owned by Christopher Copleston.

There were Copleston rectors of the local church too. Thomas Copleston in 1447 and Francis Copleston in 1539.

John (Jack) Henry Copleston

At this time of year, I just wanted to remember the uncle I never knew. I was more than shocked to find out some years ago of his fate in 1943.

Jack was killed 16th July 1943 at Primosole Bridge, Sicily, aged just 24.


4079715 – Private John Henry Copleston, 9th Battalion, Durham Light Infantry.


 

Jack is one of my heroes, lost to his family, so far away, but not forgotten.

There is page on my website dedicated to him. http://www.copleston.net/page44.htm

Jack is laid to rest in the Catania War Cemetery in Sicily.

Frederick Copleston – A History of Philosophy

Frederick Copleston (1907-1994) grew up in England. He was raised in an Anglican home but converted to Catholicism while a student at Marlborough College. He later became a Jesuit and then pursued a career in academia. He studied and lectured at Heythrop College and wrote an eleven-volume History of Philosophy, which is highly respected. He also spent time teaching at Gregorian University in Rome and, after he retired, lectured at Santa Clara University in California. He was appointed a member of the British Academy in 1970. He is famous for debating Bertrand Russell over the existence of God in a 1948 BBC broadcast.
