Chapelry History

"COPP, a chapelry in St-Michael-on-Wyre and Kirkham parishes, Lancashire, 3 miles south by southeast of Garstang. It was built as early as 1723."[1]

"ECCLESTON, GREAT, [or Copp Chapel], a township, in the parish of St. Michael upon Wyre, union of Garstang, hundred of Amounderness, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 7 miles southwest from Garstang. The ecclesiastical district of Eccleston includes also Little Eccleston, Larbrick, and Elswick. The church, dedicated to St. Ann, stands on Copp Hill; it was built in 1723, and has a square tower, added in 1823. There are a place of worship for Wesleyans, and a Roman Catholic chapel."[2]

Here is an excellent old publication about this chapel and the parish history of St Michael on Wyre, available online at no cost, at Google Books.
