Adam de Coppendale, de Beverlaco was granted, in 1366, a licence to crenellate 'quoddam mansum suum in villa de Beverlaco'. Parker writes this is Beverley Yorkshire. Coppandales were Beverley merchant family and Adam Coppendale, son of William Coppandale is recorded as a Governor of Beverley in 1359-60 and Adam Coppendale the Younger is recorded as a Governor in 1377-8.

Gatehouse Comments

The actually site of this house is not known. However, the merchant centre of Beverley and the location of most of the higher status houses seems to have been around the parish church, at the given map reference, rather than by the Minster and the archbishops palace in the south of the town.
