Brown, Blackley/Cope, Tupper, and many more.....

I have been researching the Brown, Blackley, Cope, Tupper Families in Canada and North America. The furthest back that I have found information for North America goes to the settling of the Puritans in Massachusettes. Prior to this, all roads seem to lead to England with some of the originals coming from other parts of Europe at the time of the Conquerors. Tuppers came over to Nantucket Island searching for a new life and some subsequently stayed in the United States while others emigrated to Nova Scotia. The Cope/Blackley strand arrived in the early 1900's and settled in Ontario. The Browns arrived in 1907 and settled in Northern Ontario. This long line of relatives includes in excess of of a thousand people that I know of, and probably many, many more that I don't. It has been a most interesting search and along the way I have found kings and convicts, blackguards and ministers. Some lived past the century mark and some died young. All of them brought something to the ones that came after.
Anyone wishing to share information is welcome to get in touch and help themselves to any info that I may have. Enjoy!
