Birley Carr Family History

Recommended Posts

Good morning

I wonder if anyone can help me please.

I am trying to trace mention of a Copley family back in the 1790s.

I have three (so far) children born to a John Copley but can find no more mention of them.

Where would records for Birley Carr be kept?

How big a place was it?

Is there  a family history group there or which is the nearest please?

Any help would be appreciated as I live a long way away and am not familiar with the area.

Kind regards

Carol

Thank you so much. That solves the problem of the mother I guess but gives me another one. Now to find a marriage for them. Thank you again. Much appreciated.

Kind regards
