The name Coppine arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Coppine family lived in Suffolk which is derived from the Old English copp, a word for the top or summit of a hill, and indicates someone who lived in such a place. Another reference presumes that the name was derived from the word "coppin," which was a "piece of yarn taken from a spindle." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Suffolk expression "To live like a Coppinger, points to the wealth and hospitality of a family of this name who flourished in the 16th and 17th century at Buxhall." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Coppine Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Coppinger, Coppenger, Copenger, Copinger, Coppynger, Copinsher and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Coppine or a variant listed above: Matthew Coppinger, who arrived in Barbados in 1675; John Coppinger who came to Barbados in 1680; a Mrs. Copinsher, who arrived in Boston in 1744; James Copinger, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1808.
