The name Cove is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the lush region of Cove, in Suffolk.

Cove Early Origins



The surname Cove was first found in Suffolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times in the two hamlets of North and South Cove in Suffolk which were held at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086 by Count Alan of Brettagny. Conjecturally the name is descended from that source.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution.

Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Coves to arrive in North America:
