(24)   Adam Copinger and the House of Commons


In the journals of the proceedings of the House of Commons under date 28th January, 1642, a letter of the 24th January, from Adam Copinger to Mr. Coke, of Fanchurch-street, an apothecary, one of the assessors appointed by ordinance of Parliament abusing him with foul language for service done by him in pursuance of that ordinance, was read, and it was thereupon resolved that Adam Coppinger should be forthwith sent for as a delinquent by the Sergeant-at-Arms attending on the House.  It seems Copinger presented a petition later on the subject.
