Pope Copyholds


A copyhold consisted of a house, farmyard, barn, cowshed, garden and orchard, and strips in the outlying furlongs. They were survivors of the medieval system and by the 18th century many were leased and not farmed by their actual owners
They were called copyhold’s because the terms of the tenancy and were copied into the Court Rolls or records. Provided that the terms of this tenancy were adhered to, the copyholder could not be turned out
The Francis Howard Willington’s plan of 1758 showed that John Pope  had a copyhold and possibly two furlongs (Pope’s Patch and East Meadow) in Bishopstone. They were later sold (East Meadow to Thomas Anger, through marriage) but I am still researching this element
Around 1811, William Pope  inherited some (?) of the ‘Copyhold Land’ from his father William Pope. But this was presumably held on behalf of his mother Mary Pope, as she was not expected to own property
They might have been the landlord or had a long lease on a farm located around Little Hinton (Hinton Parva)
~~~  ~~~  ~~~
In the ‘Appointionment of the Rent-Charge in lieu of Tithes in the Parish of Little Hinton’ of 1841, Mary Pope had ariable and pasture land split into …. Ariable Land, Pasture Land, Driver Land, Herd Land, Reads and Glebe including and Homestead and Churchyard
The document includes a map showing the whereabouts of 4 fields in Little Hinton parish; which were tenanted to John Norris
Cow Tail Field
Lower Meadow
Further Doctors Field
Hither Doctors Field
~~~  ~~~  ~~~
After Mary Pope and William Pope had died, his Estate (I imagine. would have included his inherited part of this land) was passed to his Widow, Jane, who was listed in the 1861 census as a ‘Land Proprietor’
What happened to this estate her death?
