cuppage family of cos. Wexford, Armagh, Antrim

I am interested in the branch of the Cuppage family that settled in Ireland. Seems that Thomas Cuppage bought land in Philadelphia and possibly Deleware from William Penn along with a Joshua Gee, a prominent London merchant (Quaker) The Cuppage family of co. Wexford was related to the Strettell family (see Strettle on this forum) through marriage and also indirectly to the Hillary family. The Strettells had purchased approx 5,000 acres in Pennsylvania and the Hillaries about 1,000. If interested please see the information on the cuppage family in the macaulay forum. Any information as to what happened to this family in the U.S. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Paul

Some Cuppage tidbits for you:

Rev John Cuppage m. 1693 Elizabeth, dau of William Waring of co. Down leaving two sons,

the younger son, John, married a dau of James Otway and had issue: John Loftus Cuppage, the eldest son, m. 1768 Dorothly, dau of Dean Handcock, father of first Lord Castlemaine with issue: 1. Richard 2. William 3. George m. Elizabeth Cuppage, dau of Adam Cuppage of Lurgan and 1. Sarah, a dau, who married Rear Admiral William le Poer Trench, 3rd son of William, 1st Earl Clancarty by his wifed Anne Gardiner, sister of 1st Lord Mountjoy.

Sarah Cuppage and Admiral Trench had issue:
1. Rev William who married 1822 Mary Hardman and had issue.

2. Rev John m. 1834 Miss Davis, dau of Charles Davis w/issue.

Admiral Trench m (2) after Sarah's decease, Margaret Handcock (nee Downing, dau of Dawson Downing of Londonderry), widow of Arthur Handcock, 2nd son of Richard, 2nd Lord Castlemaine.


Also interested in a William Cuppage who settled in Singapore. Had an estate at Emerald Hill of 5,000 nutmeg trees. He had two houses built, Erin Lodge and Fern Cottage. According to the net he was a postal service officer and acquired the estate c. 1845. He died in 1872 and seemingly was survived by his son-in-law, Edwin Koek. Edwin sold Cuppage's property and built a house called Claregrove. Any additional info on this branch of the Cuppages would be very much appreciated.
