The ancient name of Cockoper finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from a name for a cooper, a person who made and repaired barrels, casks, and buckets. It was a trade highly valued in the Middle Ages, as the construction or waterproof containers was no easy task with the tools of the time.

Cockoper Early Origins



The surname Cockoper was first found in Sussex where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Cockoper Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Cockoper family name include Cooper, Cowper, Couper, Coupar and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Cockoper surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Alexander Cooper who settled in New England in 1651; Edward Cooper settled in Virginia in 1638; George in Barbados in 1663; Thomas Cowper settled in Virginia in 1620.
