Biography

Thomas Pim Cope, 2nd (February 7, 1823 - October 22, 1900) was largely responsible for the landscaping and, in 1864, the founding of "Awbury" in Germantown, Philadelphia, Pa. He cultivated a collection of rare trees and shrubs, and commissioned the landscape architect William Saunders to assist in the design.

In 1835, Cope attended Haverford College (then The Haverford School). He married Elizabeth Waln Stokes in 1849 and with her fathered eight children. This marriage led to disownment for "marrying out." As an Elder, Cope accompanied Samuel Morris to Europe
