LDS RECORDS SUBMITTED BY M B FLANARY, 684 ROSEMONT, MEMPHIS TN., USA 38116. James Scott contacted "Barron" Flanary by phone, e-mail for source verification. His source was "The Asbury Family of Westmoreland, Va.," H.C. Holtzclaw, as well as "Marriages and Wills of Westmoreland Co., Va." There were many Asbury -- Read interrelationships. In an internet message posted in June, 2000 it was noted that there were many loose documents laying unfiled in the Westmoreland Co. Records Office. A grant was just let (in 2000) to allow for the filing of these items, which should help further research in this County!

COPLE PARISH HISTORY:
The History of Cople Parish
Cople Parish is a very special church family which continues the colonial pattern of the geographic parish. The Parish, coterminous with Cople District in southeastern Westmoreland County, was formed in 1664 and received it's name prior to 1668. The Parish consists of three churches - Nomini at Mount Holly, St. James at Tidwells, and Yeocomico at Tucker Hill.
In colonial days, it was the established church, serving the whole community in both spiritual and temporal matters. Numbered among its vestry and leading parishioners were Richard Henry Lee; Bushrod Washington; Robert "Councillor" Carter; and George Eskridge, guardian of George Washington's mother, Mary Ball, who grew up in the Parish. After the Revolution and Disestablishment, the Parish was inactive from 1801 to 1834, when once again it had a rector and resumed regular services. During the 19th century, Nomini Church was rebuilt and Yeocomico Church was restored. Because Glebe House ( which still exists ) had been sold, a home for the rector was established in the village of Hague, the geographical center of the Parish. The rectory is now in Kinsale. A chapel stood in Hague for many years near the location of the present Parish House. St. James' was established late in the century to serve Tidwells and other neighboring areas on the water.
