The Coouper family name dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. The name comes from when 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.

Coouper Early Origins



The surname Coouper 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



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 Cooupers to arrive on North American shores: 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.
