Copeland Early Origins



The surname Copeland was first found in Lancashire at Whittington. "This is the Witetvne of the Saxon era, and was anciently of considerable extent. William de Coucy in the 14th of Edward III. had a grant of free warren here; and in the 49th of the same reign, Sir John de Coupeland, successor of de Coucy, owned a third of the manor: the manor was therefore held in portions, but when they were united does not appear." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Ashton in Lancashire was another ancient family seat. "Ashton is remarkable as the ancient seat of the De Courcys, out of which family it passed by marriage to John de Coupland (died 1363), the hero of Neville's Cross." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
The squire from Northumberland captured David II of Scotland after the Battle of Neville's Cross in 1346. He was knighted for his actions but was ambushed and killed in 1363.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Benigno numine
Motto Translation: By Divine Providence.
