Spelling variations of this family name include: Scrope, Scroope, Scroop, Scope and others.

First found in Yorkshire where "few families were more important in the 14th and 15th centuries than the noble house of Scrope; their descent is unbroken from the Conquest. Few houses also have been more distinguished by the number of great offices of honour held both in Church and State." [1] The first record in Yorkshire was found in "Bolton, being from the period of Edward I., their principal seat and Barony." [1] The surname's origin can be traced to "one of King Edward the Confessor's foreign attendants named Richard, to whom the Anglo-Saxons gave the derisory name of Sceope, or 'the Scrub' either on account of some inferior office or perhaps as a merely satirical appellation, and who was one of the few Normans permitted to remain at court after the rest had been driven away." [2]
