The first mention of Coppull came in 1215 as Coppull of Worthington. By 1830 Coppull was a rather unimportant agricultural area of a few cottages, houses and farms, and a small chapel to the east.

After 1850 Coppull grew rapidly, many new rows of houses were built to house coal miners and factory workers. There were many collieries and deep shafts were sunk for the John Pit, Springfield Pit, Blainscough, Hic Bibi, Darlingtons, Ellerbeck, Birkacre and Pearsons mines. Mineral lines carried coal tubs to the main railway. Brickworks at Hic Bibi, Coppull Moor and off Mike Lane used Coppull clay for this industrial boom.

"COPPULL, a township, and an ecclesiastical district, in the parish of Standish, union of Chorley, hundred of Leyland, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 4 miles (S. S. W.) from Chorley; the township containing 1031 inhabitants. Richard Fitz-Thomas, lord of Coppull, before the general use of dates in charters, gave to the priory of Burscough a part of his land, and "pannage in the woods of Coppull, with common of pasture, and all the easements and liberties appertaining to the town of Coppull." In the 5th of Charles I., Edward Rigbye held the manor, which was subsequently sold to the Hodgson family. The township was originally skirted by a copse, and hence, probably, derived its name; it is of level surface, and commands fine views of the Rivington hills. There is an extensive coal-mine, also some print-works; see Birkacre. One of the stations of the North-Union railway is situated here. The ecclesiastical district includes the townships of Charnock-Richard and Welsh-Whittle: the living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £120; patron, the Rector of Standish. The church was built in 1657, rebuilt and enlarged in 1758, and repaired in 1840. The tithes of Coppull have been commuted for £261. 12. 6. A national school was built in 1847."

Chapelry History

COPPULL, a township, was created originally as a chapel of ease in 1717, and stood within civil parish of Standish, union of Chorley, hundred of Leyland, N. division of the county of Lancaster,4 miles (S. S. W.) from Chorley. It is part of the borough of Chorley, lies around 300 feet (91 m) above sea level and has a population of around 7,600. It is bounded by Whittle Brook, Clancutt Brook, the River Yarrow, Eller Brook, Hic-Bibi Brook and Stars Brook. Coppull is located between Chorley and Standish, Greater Manchester, to the east of the A49 road near Charnock Richard. The present church with no dedication in Chapel Lane was rebuilt in 1861.[1]

The first mention of Coppull came in 1215 as Coppull of Worthington. By 1830 Coppull was a rather unimportant agricultural area of a few cottages, houses and farms, and a small chapel to the east.

After 1850 Coppull grew rapidly, many new rows of houses were built to house coal miners and factory workers. There were many collieries and deep shafts were sunk for the John Pit, Springfield Pit, Blainscough, Hic Bibi, Darlingtons, Ellerbeck, Birkacre and Pearsons mines. Mineral lines carried coal tubs to the main railway. Brickworks at Hic Bibi, Coppull Moor and off Mike Lane used Coppull clay for this industrial boom.
