Copeland Genealogy & History

The surname Copeland has two possible sources, Old Norse and English. The Norse "kaupland" or "kaupa land" meant "bought land". Copeland family history indicates that these Norse members were landowners. During medieval times, when most land was only handed down from generation to generation, this was enough of a rarity to make it worthy of mentioning in the surname. The name migrated to Scotland and Northern England. It became Copeland in Cumberland and Cumbria and Coupland in Northumberland. This name may also be spelled as Copland. Copeland genealogy includes pianist George Copeland and American composer Aaron Copland.
