Cooper Genealogy & History

Cooper is Anglo-Saxon, coming from Old German "kup", meaning "container". However, the name also became conflated with similar-sounding names, such as Cowper, Coper, and Copper. Because of the importance of the cooper trade (barrel-making), this name is one of the earliest on record in England, with the first recordings of the family name as Robert le Cupere in 1176. Cooper family history shows that Walter Cooper was recorded in the 1619 "Muster of the Inhabitants of Virginia" as one of the earliest European settlers. Cooper genealogy lists such notable Coopers as the novelist James Fenimore Cooper, Nobel laureate Leon N. Cooper, and the actor Bradley Cooper.
