James Copithorne 1846

Edit profile to show place of migration

My grandmother was Elizabeth Copithorne (1874–1962), the third child of James Copithorne (1846– ) and Martha Roycroft (1850–1931) of Skull. My great-great grandparents on my great grandfather’s side were William Copithorne and Margaret Morgan, and on my great grandmother’s side, Joseph Roycroft and Katherine Roycroft, about whom I know little more than their names. My grandmother and two of her sisters, Martha and Mary, emigrated to the Boston area around the turn of the century and were later joined by their brother, Tom. My grandmother’s siblings were William Copithorne (1871–1895), Margaret (1872–1947), Richard Copithorne (1875–1970), Martha (1877–1961), Mary Jane (1879­–1975), Louisa (1881–1961), Annie 1883–1944), Hester (1885–1904), Rosaline (1886–1966), Thomas Copithorne (1888–1972), James (1890–1980), and Joseph (1891– ). According to the 1901 census my great grandparents and 9 of their children were living in Corravoley, Kilcoe, but in the 1911 census they were living with 6 of their children in Ballady, Kilmonoge.

My aunt Winifred was the unofficial family genealogist, and my goddaughter, Allegra Connell Frank, and double-second cousin Stella Marston (my great-uncle William Connell married my grandmother’s sister, Mary Copithorne), have been working extensively on Ancestry.com. My grandmother’s family was Church of Ireland, and I would very much like to know more about my great-great grandparents as well as any information about the family after the move to Kilmonoge.

Thanking you in advance for your assistance,

Jean Connell Hoff

    Hi Jean,
    If you have not done so already, could I refer you to my brothers website    www.westcorkgenealogy.com   open Tab for West Cork Families and on the alphabetical list, click on R for Roycroft and you should find detail of very many Roycroft names and details.

    Please let me know through this website or my personal email frankfahy@eircom.net . how you got on.  I believe you may find much of interest on Roycrofts and possibly other families you are seeking.
