The earliest origins of the Corage surname date from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name reveals that an early member was a brave or stout-hearted person. The surname Corage was sometimes derived from the Old English word corage, which in turn comes from the Old French words corage and curage, which mean stout. The surname Corage is also sometimes derived from residence in or near the settlement of Cowridge End in Luton, in the county of Bedfordshire. In this case, the name belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Corage or a variant listed above: James Corish, who settled in New York in 1792; John Corish, who arrived in New York in 1841; Elizabeth Corish, who settled in Quebec in 1847; Hilaire Courage, who settled in America in 1847.
