Hi Marcie
Yes from Edinburgh, Leith and I think Fife.
John Copeland & Isabella Walker came from Down Ireland to Ayr about
1853-56 to Ayrshire. John their son married Annie McCall Shuttleton
1882 St Quivox in Ayr and moved to Portobello sometime after that.
All their children were born in Edinburgh and Portobello.
Regards Hineahua :)

Hi ,
Then there could well be a connection to the Copland/Copeland family from Rayne etc.  Elaine Nixon (a member of ancestry), is in nz and is looking for people of that name. If either I invite you or you  join temporarily the pair of you can get together to see if there is a connection.  Except for Moses, the other names you mention seem to run through that family from around that period and perhaps are siblings or cousins to those I have connexions to. The same as in  your direct family.  I found a site where they have some old photos of Portobello, just by googling Portobello Edinburgh and I made a note of some bakeries.  High Street Portobello is a Greggs bakers I think 164. Wondered if you had the exact address, it may be nice to have a copy if its a match.

John Copeland aged 65 Hd St.Cuthberts Gatekeeper
Catherine 48 wife born greenock

Right Jane,
the 1891 census  Gros 684/01 004/ 00 025 Duddingston & Portobello
146 High Street Portobello
Thomas Copeland Hd age is illegible  occ: Confectioner born Newton Ayr
Annie Copeland wife age 29 also born Newton Ayr
John Copeland son aged 7 Scholar born in Edinburgh
William Copeland son 5 Scholar born Edinburgh
James Copeland son aged 3 born in Portobello
there is also a mention of a jamie? Morrison son un cannot read age. Domestic servant
Have not checkedEdinburgh to find the exact date of their arrival in the area. They seem to have fallen between census.  but checking the birth of the two children born in Edinburgh would give you a more accurate date. Marjorie

254 High Street, Portobello, seems to be a restaurant these days.

Portobello has never been part of Leith, incidentally.

Jane, tried looking for John and Williams births in Edinburgh, came up empty handed, no matches.  Maybe someone else may be able to find them for you.  Have not tried James aged 3, that would mean he would have beenborn abt.1887/8
