Notes for Susannah (Spouse 1)
By the process of elimination I have come to the conclusion that Susannah Coupe was the daughter of John and Mary Coupe. While she was unmarried she had a daughter Elizabeth Coupe, and a younger sister Betsy Coupe. Betsy Coupe and Elizabeth Martin Coupe were both born in Egmanton, Nottinghamshire a month or two apart. Betsy Coupe was a witness at Elizabeth Martin Coupe’s wedding. Egmanton, Nottinghamshire today is a village of about 250. How many Elizabeth Martin Coupe’s and Betsy Coupes could have been born in the same year in such a small village?
