I thought it would likely be Copperas Hill.

It's a bit of a scrawl but there is an 'i' in there, so perhaps whoever filled in the Register or supplied the details hadn't heard of the word Copperas so put in what they thought it might be. Thanks for the suggestion.

Well, well, it's good to have the address confirmed. I don't have time to check every detail (I'd never finish the task), so it's good to get confirmation. Thanks, dathai, and thank you to everybody else who offered suggestions - much appreciated.
