Copsey Early Origins



The surname Copsey was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1379 when Thomas Cobson held estates and was recorded on the tax roll of that shire.
