The name Cockopers finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as 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.

Cockopers Early Origins



The surname Cockopers 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.

The Great Migration



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 Cockopers or a variant listed above: 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.
