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.

St Michael’s Rectors
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.
