Early Origins of the Koopman family


The surname Koopman was first found in North Holland, a province of the Netherlands. The principal cities are Amsterdam, Haarlem and Hilversum. It was the seat of the Counts of Holland, one of the oldest groups of families in that area. They held a family seat at Brederode Castle near Haarlem. There are many old and quaint towns in the province including Medemblik, Enkhuizen, Hoorn, Edam, and Monnikendam.
