Schopes Early Origins



The surname Schopes was 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]CITATION[CLOSE]
Shirley, Evelyn Philip, The Noble and Gentle Men of England; The Arms and Descents. Westminster: John Bower Nichols and Sons, 1866, Print.
The first record in Yorkshire was found in "Bolton, being from the period of Edward I., their principal seat and Barony." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Shirley, Evelyn Philip, The Noble and Gentle Men of England; The Arms and Descents. Westminster: John Bower Nichols and Sons, 1866, Print.

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]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.

Masham in the North Riding of Yorkshire "was anciently the residence of the baronial family of Scroop, of whom Henry, Lord le Scroop, lord treasurer, and Archbishop Scroop, were both beheaded for high treason in the reign of Henry IV." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
