Cotter Genealogy & History

Cotter stems from the pre-seventh-century Old English word cot, meaning a cottage, and also from cotter, a term for a serf or bonded person. The family motto is while I breathe, I hope. Cotter family history tells us that the first known recording on the name is Robert le Cotier in the Pipe Rolls of Sussex, England, in 1198. Two members of the Cotter genealogy are environmental advocate and community organizer Tom Cotter and Stanford University political science professor Cornelius P. Cotter.
