The Anglo-Saxon name Coppes comes from when the family resided on the top of a high hill. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the Old English word coppe, for a high hill or promontory. It was also used as a word for a lookout; a place where an observer could see the landscape for miles around, and therefore be able to warn of an approaching army. As a place-name, it is largely extinct, except for one location; there is a Spying Copp outside of the Liverpool Soccer Stadium is a good place to watch the games for free.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Coppes or a variant listed above: Edward Copp of Providence, Rhode Island, arrived in the sailing ship "Blessing." He and his two sons Richard and William Copp were shoemakers and later moved to Boston, Massachusetts in 1630. Part of his estate in Boston was known as Copp Hill. Mr. Copp settled in New York in 1820.
