The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Coatney has been recorded under many different variations, including Coates, Coate, Coats and others.

First found in Staffordshire where the family are "descended from Richard de Cotes, who was probably son of Thomas de Coates, living in 1157, when the Black Book of the Exchequer was compiled." [1] At that time, he held large estates on the Salop, Staffordshire borders.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Coatney or a variant listed above: John Coates who settled in Virginia in 1650; James Coates settled in Jamaica in 1679; Mary Coates settled in New York in 1686; William Coates settled in Barbados in 1660.
