Notes for Susannah COUPE
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?

Notes for Samuel (Spouse 1)
It is very probable that this Samuel Martin is the father of Elizabeth Martin Coupe. For the following reasons.
1 In her marriage documents Elizabeth Martin Coupe lists her father as Samuel Martin and hos occupationmiller. Samuel’s father was a miller.
2. This Samuel Martin lived in Weston less than 3 miles from Egmanton where Susannah Coupe lived. Scarthing Moor Mill is between Weston and Egmanton. (It still seems to owned by a Martin.)
3. This Samuel Martin is about the right age as his age is close to Susannah’s.
4. In the 1861 census which was taken less than a year after Elizabeth Martin Coupe was born Elizabeth remained in Egmanton, staying at a family next to the ministers house. The rest of her family including her mother moved to Manchester. Her father’s family remained in Weston, however her father moved away.
