Koopmans Early Origins



The surname Koopmans 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. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
