Started looking at this the other day and wondered why the Copleston’s had to auction off about 388 acres of land in Milton Damerel, Devon.
The explanation is below the auction document, having found it in the Milton Damerel Newsletter 3rd edition May 2000. http://www.miltondamerel.com/newsletters.htm
The same day that I went to Yealmpton, I visited Tamerton Foliot again.
Unfortunately they lock the church now, and so I could not get in to get some more pictures of the memorial to John and Susanna Copleston. The Oak Tree is still thriving and I did get a better close up of the plaque at the base. Pictures below…enjoy.
I have updated a lot of links on the page below on the Copleston.net site.
Happy New Year to Cop(p)leston(e)s everywhere
