David COPPIN, Australia

Journal by coppinsideshoot

I am looking for David COPPIN, biological son of Bruce Edwin COPPIN, in Australia. Bruce emigrated from the UK to Australia in 1968, leaving behind several children (of which I am one). It is believed he married a lady named Jennifer, and worked in Sydney. He had a shop called 'Satan's Hole'. Bruce died in Australia in 1996. I am looking to find any children he fathered in the UK and Australia/other countries. I would gratefully receive any information at all, i.e. regarding Bruce's wife, Jennifer, who he married in Australia, addresses, personal information, photographs, relatives, friends, colleagues etc.

Did you shop at Satan's Hole?
Were you a neighbour?
Do you know any COPPINs?
Did you nurse him prior to his death?
Do you know where he's buried?

If you have any information at all, please get in touch.

Satan's Hole was a record shop at Centrepoint.

I've found a marriage between Bruce and Barbara Rose HYMAN before emigrating. 1953 at Middlesex
Am I on the right track?

Hi Janilye.
You are on the right track.
I'm Larry Nigel Coppin, Bruces son by his marriage to Barbara Rose Hyman I have a sister Denise and have another sister also trying to contact David.
Do you know him or know anything of Bruce and the family in Australia?
I'd love to hear from you, hopefully learn a bit more and meet David and family. I know almost nothing about Bruce but do have the family history although I know David has that already, it's the modern stuff none of us know.
Please write soon I'm looking forward to it.

Sorry to disappoint you but I am not related.
I remember the record shop, billed as (the hottest place in Sydney)
The marriage I found online.
I've now found a few trees, cross referenced all the information and come up with with the following:
Bruce Edwin COPPIN was born in Westhampnett, Sussex, England, on the 28 March 1932 and Married Barbara Rose HYMAN 1994-1997 at Middlesex on the 1 January 1953.
Residences: 1968 = Dickinson Road, Longsight, Manchester.
5 Nov 1955 = 12 Broadmead Close, Hatch End, Greater London UK.
16 Feb 1953 = 19 St Hildas Way Ashford Staines Middlesex UK. This was Bruce's parents' address.

Occupation: Feb 1953 Gentlemen's Outfitters Assistant age 21.
Nov 1955 Wholesale Stationer age 23.

birth = "Mlanji" High Street, Selsey.
Sailed from Southampton to Australia in 1968 under the Assisted Passage Scheme (?10), possibly via South Africa, may also have visited Asia and China on the way to Australia.

Another Spouse: Jeannette WARD b1947 Manchester d: 2012 Manchester issue: 1 daughter

according to all the trees I've seen; Bruce Edwin COPPIN died in Sydney in 1996.

Access to death records in Australia is denied after 1982.
With privacy laws access to most records is impossible unless you can prove you are a family member. If you email bd&m in each state, (start with NSW) tell them who you are and you are sure to obtain a death certificate.
And I found a photograph of him, looks like it was taken in England.

Hi Janilye, thanks for your response. I suspect the information you've found has come via my ancestry family tree. I'm pleased to say that David Coppin is now in touch with his English siblings.

I'm interested in any pictures you may've found (although, again, they may've come from my ancestry family tree).

It appears that Bruce was cremated and his ashes were scattered in the ocean.

It's good to hear that Satan's Hole did well for him.

If there are any other siblings out there, get in touch!
