Coopar History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The many generations and branches of the Coopar family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member 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.

Early Origins of the Coopar family


The surname Coopar 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.

Migration of the Coopar family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Coopar family emigrate to North America: 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.
