The Coleepeper family name dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. The name comes from when an early member worked as a spicer. The name is derived from two Old English elements, cul and pepper. It meant "pepper gatherer." As spices were rare and expensive in the medieval period, this would have been a valued occupation.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Coleepepers to arrive on North American shores: Henry Culpeper who settled in Virginia in 1663; Jonathan Culpeper settled in Virginia in 1646; William Culpepper settled in New England in 1634; Margaret Culpepper settled in Virginia in 1751..
