As a result, there are many spelling variations of Scottish single names. Calp has been written Culp, Colp, Cup, Cope and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of Scots left their home country to travel to Ireland or Australia, or to cross the Atlantic for the North American colonies. The difficult crossing was an enormous hurdle, but those who survived found freedom and opportunity in ample measure. Some Scots even fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence. This century, their ancestors have become aware of the illustrious history of the Scots in North America and at home through Clan societies and other organizations. Passenger and immigration lists show many early and influential immigrants bearing the name Calp: Connard Colp who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1732; followed by Charles in 1856; Anthony Cope settled in Jamaica in 1722; Richard Cope settled in New England in 1635.
