Origins Available: English, Scottish


The Copper name was an occupational name given to a maker or repairer of barrels, casks, and buckets. It comes from the Middle English word "couper," or "cowper." 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.

Copper Early Origins



The surname Copper 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.
