Reuniting Families of Yesteryear For Tomorrow

From the Beginning...........

Decendants of William Copp

The Copp family donated Copps Hill to the city of Boston. There are many famous people buried there such as Paul Revere and many of the Mayflower Pilgrims. Both the Copp family and the Greenlaw family branch back to above five pilgrims of the Mayflower. William Copp and two of his brothers, Anthony Copp and Walter Copp have been indentified in England.

William came to America from England June 17, 1635 on the barque "Blessing", commanded by Capt. John Leicestger. He is described on the passenger list as a "cordwainer", (shoemaker), age 26. He was admitted to the First Church of Boston, June 20, 1640 (some allege that he was a member of Cotton and Increase Mather's church (the "Old North", of Second Church of Boston, but the Copp's kept their membership in the First Church for many years after the Second Church was established.)

Soon after arriving in Boston, William acquired a half-acre of land on the waterfront overlooking the Charles River at the head of Prince Street-called the "Mill Field" because of a windmill used to grind corn and grain that was located on it-subsequently called Mill Hill, Snow Hill, then Copp's Hill; maybe named after William, but more likely after his son Elder David Copp.

The North End where William lived became a very prosperous area, declining only after the Revolutionary War. By that time, the Copp's were gone from Boston. William's will of Oct. 31, 1662 was admitted to probate & Feb. 1670. He was a wealthy man for that period, owning two houses and outbuildings in Boston, plus 100 acres "beyond Braintree".

We descended from the son Elder David Copp and Obedience Topliffe. Then thru the son Deacon Jonathon Copp and Catherine Lay.

c. Samuel Copp born April 6, 1742 Died October 4, 1816. One of the early settlers of Lebanon, Maine, came probably from the adjoining town of Rochester, New Hampshire, as early as 1767. He settled in the extreme western part of the town, in the Salmon Falls River Valley, and was the first person to clear a farm in that immediate locality. The house erected by him in 1778, the oldest now (1896) standing in town, is owned and occupied by Frederic Dixon, being in a good state of preservation.

On July 14, 1776, Rev. Isaac Hasey wrote in his diary: "Bill up by  Sam. copp for himself bound into ye army"; and on the next day he wrote, "Col Goodwin here to muster and pay men." On a New Hampshire muster-roll dated at  Charlestown, MA, July 27, 1776, his name appears as a lieutenant in Capt. Drew's Co., raised for Canada out of  Col. Evan's and Col. Badger's Regiments. Capt. Drew was of Barrington, NH.  On November 20, 1776, at Mount Independence, he, with other army officers, signed a petition for certain persons for field-officers in the third Battalion.

He was the first representaive to the General Court from Lebanon, in 1772, a selectman of the town in 1777 and 1778, a member of the First Church from August 20, 1780; a deacon from 1781,and subsequently an elder in that church. He was a man of great physical strength as were his sons.

Born in Rochester, NH he married first wife Hannah Hayes in 1764. He also married Sarah (Scates) Knox-Wentworth on June 21, 1798 widow of Thomas Knox of Berwick, Maine, and of Nathaniel Wentworth of Middleton, NH He died before 1818 at whch date his widow Sally paid a ministerial tax.

Samuel Copp was buried on the farm that he leard, and his grave, unmarked, is in what is now a pasture on the hill-side of the Dixon farm. "Copp's Bridge," spanning the Salmon Falls river near this farm, is all that the present generation have to remind them of Samuel Copp.

 Charles Wesley Copp Jr. who married Muriel Henrietta Ostriche b. March 24, 1896 in New York City, NY.  

 She had planned to be an elementary school teacher. Her plans changed one day, while she was in high school, when she encountered, Christy Cabanne on the street and was invited by him to take a screen test at the American Biograph studios. She dd this, and in autumn 1911 she joined Biograph as an extra in several films, after which the budding actress went to Powers, Pathe, and then to the newly-formed American Eclair Company in Fort Lee, New Jersey, where she spent a year under the direction of Etienne Arnaud and appeared in many films. Followng her work with Eclair, Miss Ostriche had a brief stint with Reliance, after which she went to Thanhouser, where she was hired by Charles J. Hite. Her first Thanhouser film was Miss Mischief, released in June 1913. In a book by Frances Agnew, Motion Picture Acting she is described as  a dainty, bewitching little miss of 17 summers, the most entertaining little talker, and merely being with her imbues one with the same instinct of a determined ambition which means to win!"

While with Thanhouser Film Corporation the president Charles J. Hite set up a special division, the Princess Department, to showcase Muriel's talents. For most of the next year she appeared in weekly single reel Princess releases, usually with Boyd Marshall as her leading man. Another leading man was dancing partner, Rudolph Valentino. In later years Miss Ostriche was with Universal, then Vitagraph, and then for three years with World, where she appeared in many productions. Still later, she starred in several films released through Arrow Productions and others Muriel Ostriche Copp died  at age 93 on May 3, 1989 in St. Petersburg, FL. Muriel was the last surviving major star from the Thanhouser studio.

View one of the only films still available as many were lost on the Thanhouser studio website. Give generously to keep Muriel's work available.

More about Muriel from the American Movie Classics Website:

With her brown curls and gamine beauty, brunette Muriel Ostriche (born Oestrich) made her screen debut with Biograph in 1910 but became a star with the New York-based Thanhouser company, who named a special brand in her honor, the so-called Princess films. These one-reel situation comedies, in which she often starred opposite the handsome Boyd Marshall, made her one of America's favorite actresses in 1913 and 1914, and she was listed ahead of Mary Pickford in several popularity polls. Ostriche also appeared in more serious fare, such as the still extant The Decoy (1914), in which she played an innocent girl falling in with a gang of card sharks; she left Thanhouser in 1915 for Universal, Vitagraph, and World, but never obtained the same kind of acclaim and retired to marry in 1918. Residing in complete obscurity in St. Petersburg, FL, an octogenarian Ostriche was rediscovered in the 1980s by author Q. David Bowers who made her the subject of a groundbreaking book on the early film industry, Muriel Ostriche: Princess of Silent Films (1987).

Dr. A. G. Smith, Senior Inspector in charge of County Horticultural Inspection in the Pasadena District, died at his home, 152 South Lake Avenue, Pasadena, on Sunday, March 18, 1923. Funeral services were held at the Chapel of Ives and Warren, in Pasadena.

Dr. Smith was born in Bellerica, Mass. In 1859, passed the entrance examinations for Harvard University at the age of 16, but because of his youth was not permitted to enter until one year later. At Harvard he studied under Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, receiving special commendation from him for the excellence of his work. After completing a post graduate course in pharmacy, following his graduation from the Harvard Medical School, he received an appointment as physician of the McLean Institute for the Insane, and later was Superintend ant of the State School for the Feeble Minded. He later removed to California, making his home at Palermo, as a practicing physician. Five years later he came to Los Angeles and thence to Pasadena where he finally made his home in 1896, remaining there until his death.

Wile in Pasadena, Dr. Smith was engaged for a number of years with another physician in the conduct of a pulmonary sanitarium. During this period he also operated a drug store in Pasadena. Later, on account of ill health, he abandoned the practice of medicine and purchased the patent rights in a floor finishing machine, in which business he was engaged for approximately 14 years. The also, because of the state of his health, he took up horticultural inspection work, associating himself with the Los Angeles County Horticultural Commissioner’s Office.

Dr. Smith’s life was a succession of struggles against the handicap of ill health, successful, largely because of the exercise of exceptional will power and fortitude. He was a deep student of horticultural matters and was rated as one of the leading citrus experts of California. Though a partial invalid, Dr. Smith led a very active live, keeping in touch with a number of outside business interests.

Because of his long association with the Los Angeles County Horticultural Department and the high regard in which he was held, he is sincerely mourned by the members of the staff of the Horticultural Commissioner’s Office and a host of other friends.

vii. John Copp Surveyor and Colonial John of All Trades by Silvio A. Bedini is an Historian Emeritus with the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., and a Contributing Editor for Professional Surveyor Magazine

He writes:

In reading about colonial American surveyors, it is apparent that few if any were professionally trained. For the most part they were self-taught and pursued other community activities in addition to surveying, generally a common trade ranging from farming to shoemaking. An exception was John Copp of Boston, who fulfilled numerous civic responsibilities not only in one community, but in two, as well as in his state. Born in 1673, he was the son of David Copp, one of William Copp's nine children and a cordwainer like his father. William Copp had emigrated from England. David expanded the cordwainer business, was the ruling elder of the First Church, clerk of the market, and sealer of leather. He was a surveyor and adviser to the Boston selectmen on various matters including laying of bounds for highways and property listings in the town. David also "was designated by the selectmen to cooperate with the constable in the suppression of excessive drinking and disorders in private houses and licensed places of entertainment." He was a highly esteemed citizen and bearer at funerals of the old elite of old Boston, and among his friends was the Reverend Cottom Mather.

Established in Many Professions
His son John Copp moved to Connecticut while in his twenties, and in 1698 he married the widow Mary Jagger Phelps of Stamford. Apparently, not long thereafter he was widowed, then married again three years later to another widow. There were no children from either marriage.
During the next few years Copp apparently established himself as a schoolteacher in Stamford with success, for his name next appeared in Norwalk in 1701 when a town meeting voted to hire him as schoolmaster "in case he can be obtained." The meeting left the salary open to negotiation of "reasonable termes" but specified that part of the payment in the amount of 1 pound 55 should come from a tuition charged to the "schollers" (pupils) with the payment divided equally among them. Copp accepted the position and taught both day and evening classes.
In addition to schoolteacher, Copp was also the local medical doctor. In 1705 he "obtained the recommendation of the selectmen of Norwalk and applied for a license to practise medicine." He was granted a license, and in 1710 or 1711 he was appointed a surgeon with a Connecticut regiment which was to march to Port Royal in Canada to engage the French in battle. At a meeting of the Governor's Council in New Haven held on July 24, 1711, it was ordered that a letter be dispatched to Copp "desiring him to attend and go as Doctor in the expedition against Canada, which letter was drawn and sent accordingly." Copp was to be paid six pounds a month for his service out of the Colony treasury "and that he shall have a suit of the regimental cloaths, gratis." If and where and when Copp received medical training is not known.
Copp had been trained in surveying by his father, and probably had accompanied him on some of his field work, and from time to time engaged in surveying when called upon. When as early as 1697 Norwalk residents began to become interested in land to the north of their community which was owned by Indians, Copp frequently was called upon to survey for members of the community. The land was high and rocky, but the soil was fertile and there were more than sixty miles of streams that could serve future mills. In 1706 and again two years later, he was asked with others to survey land in the region, but various difficulties arose and the expeditions resulted in failure.

The First Purchase
Finally, working alone in the summer of 1708, Copp managed to draw up boundaries for a tract of land of 20,000 acres, roughly in the southern half of the present town of Ridgefield. He reported back to the Norwalk residents that "we went up to view said tract of land and upon our diligent endeavour for a discovery, we find it to be accomodated with upland considerably good and for quantity sufficient for thirty families, and as for meadow land it surpasses both in quantity as well as in quality what is common to be found in larger plantations." In September, Copp and two others from Norwalk representing the first 26 settlers of new community to be named "Ridgfield" (later changed to "Ridgefield") paid the Indians £100 sterling for what was called "the first purchase" of which there were to be seven more. The purchase having been made, the General Assembly in session at Hartford in May 1709 appointed Major Peter Burr of Fairfield, John Copp of Norwalk, and Josiah Starr of Danbury, to serve as a committee to make a survey of the tract of land and to lay it out for a town plat, and to make return to the General Assembly at New Haven in the following October "of their doings therein, and of their opinion how many inhabitants the said tract of land may admit and contain." After this was done, a grant was made by the General Assembly in session at New Haven on October 13, 1709.
Copp was elected recorder or town clerk of the first town meeting in 1709 and of which his notes of the meeting survive. Although for a short time in 1714 Copp held title to property in the new community, he did not hold title to property in the town. In 1714 he had some land deeded to him which he turned over to another several months later; it appears that he was acting merely as a trustee.
During the first several years of Ridgfield's settlement, Copp apparently lived with one pioneer family or another for periods ranging from days to months at a time while he helped to lay out the town and its main street. It was to be six rods wide, and to run north and south along the eastern declivity of the ridge. On either side of the street, home lots of two-and-one-half acres were laid out, and in the rear of these, additional lots of five acres, making a total of seven-and- one-half acres. Subsequent divisions were made of the plough land, meadow land, and bogs.

Haphazard Schooling
Copp also served as the town's physician, and as its first schoolmaster, instructing the children in a small meeting house near the center of the town. Schooling appears to have been somewhat haphazard because Copp also had responsibilities in Norwalk during this period, and it was not until 1721 that the subject of education was mentioned in the town records. Ridgfield's first town meetings were probably held in Norwalk until the settlement became more permanent and populated. Copp was also the town clerk for Norwalk from 1708 to 1740. It is likely that Copp's records of Ridgfield town meetings were compiled in Norwalk, his last entry made in 1713, when he was succeeded as both recorder and schoolmaster by the Reverend Thomas Hauley, the town's first minister.
The settlement of Ridgfield was but one of Copp's endeavors, for during the same period he was extremely active in the civic and ecclesiastical life of Norwalk and of Fairfield County as well. In 1706, 1716, and 1718-19 he was elected state representative from Norwalk to the Connecticut General Assembly. In 1711 he was appointed county surveyor and at the governor's request he assisted with a 1716 survey to determine the boundary between Connecticut and New York State. In 1719 he was engaged in clearing up confusion over the boundaries of the community of Norwalk. In 1726 he was appointed to a town committee to present grievances to county officials. Copp also surveyed the town of Bradford, New York
Copp was no less active in Norwalk's ecclesiastical affairs. He was a deacon in Norwalk's First Congregational Church, and the town records note that in 1723 he was granted a position of importance, "the second pue [sic] from the pulpitt." His wife was placed "in the third pue on the women's side." During the mid 1720s, Copp served on several church committees that attempted to settle a dispute between the minister and his parishioners, who were then most of the townspeople. The dispute became so heated that in 1726 it was voted at the town meeting to discontinue payment to the minister of his salary. Copp's name appeared on the records of Ridgfield in 1739, noting that he had come to town to attend the installation of the new Congregational minister, Jonathan Ingersoll, who came to replace Thomas Hauley, who had died the year before.
In his will drawn up in 1749, Copp freed his two slaves, Jack and Sarah, and provided them with support. Copp died on May 16, 1751, at the age of seventy-eight. There are few suitable memorials to John Copp in either community in which he lived and worked. Copps Mountain, a name first used in the town deed of 1721, was given to a ridge in the northern part of Ridgefield. Along the southern end of this ridge is "Settler's Rock," campsite of the scouting party that set out to survey Ridgefield in 1708 before the first purchase was made from the Indians. Of later date, occurring in deeds from 1748, is also Copps Old Line referring to the border between Danbury and Ridgefield.  John Copp Died May 16, 1751, Norwalk, CT
