"COPGROVE, a parish-town, in the lower-division of Claro; (the seat of Thomas Duncombe, Esq.) 4 miles N. of Knaresborough and 4 from Boroughbridge, 6 from Ripon. Pop. 87. The Church is a rectory, dedicated to St. Michael (see Churches for photograph), in the deanry of Boroughbridge, diocese of Chester, value, ~£5. 9s. 7d. p.r. !£80. Patron, Thomas Duncombe, Esq.

Before the conquest, Gospatric, a northern nobleman, was Lord of this village, where he had six caracutes of land; three of which, were arable. In the 20th of William I. Erneis de Borun, a Norman, had this manor; whose servant, Trusten, held here one caracute, with one plough, and seven villeins. Here was then a church; and the manor a mile long, and half a mile broad, was, in the time of King Edward, valued at 20s.; but at the above mentioned time, only at 16s. --Vide Domesday Book."
