Lawrence Copeland
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1626
Lancashire, England
Death: Dec. 30, 1699
Norfolk County
Massachusetts, USA

He was possibly the son of Lawrence Copeland (b.c1590) and Ruth ____ Copeland of Northumberland and Yorkshire. And therefore possibly the brother of immigrant John Copeland of Isle of Wight,VA. It has been said that he died at age 100, or even 110, but this is from long held family tradition/myth, and is not substantiated with any degree of certainty.

He married Lydia Townsend on Dec 10,1651 at Braintree,MA.

Children: Thomas Copeland, Thomas Copeland, William Copeland, John Copeland, Lydia Copeland White, Ephraim Copeland, Hannah Copeland, Richard Copeland, and Abigail Copeland Isgate.

NOTE: There is a memorial to him in Hancock Cemetery in Quincy, placed by descendants, ascribing to him the mythical centenarian status. As such, the memorial is placed here. However, his true burial place is unknown.
