Cope Genealogy & History

Cope is an English name that was originally derived from the Middle English word cope (from the Old English cap), meaning cape or cloak. Thus, it was most likely an occupational name given to people who made capes. Cope family history is first recorded with Ailward Cape (an alternate spelling), who lived in Kent in 1190; early Copes were also found in Leicestershire. Cope genealogy includes Blessed Mother Marianne Cope, a Roman Catholic religious sister who spent her life treating lepers and is scheduled to be canonized. The Cope family motto is aequo adeste animo, meaning be present with an unchangeable mind.
