Early Origins of the Coaplyn family
The surname Coaplyn was first found in Lancashire at Whittington. "This is the Witetvne of the Saxon era, and was anciently of considerable extent. William de Coucy in the 14th of Edward III. had a grant of free warren here; and in the 49th of the same reign, Sir John de Coupeland, successor of de Coucy, owned a third of the manor: the manor was therefore held in portions, but when they were united does not appear."  Ashton in Lancashire was another ancient family seat. "Ashton is remarkable as the ancient seat of the De Courcys, out of which family it passed by marriage to John de Coupland (died 1363), the hero of Neville's Cross."  The squire from Northumberland captured David II of Scotland after the Battle of Neville's Cross in 1346. He was knighted for his actions but was ambushed and killed in 1363.
