Coates Genealogy & History

Coates may be locational or topographical in nature. Those who argue for the locational origin link the surname to the towns of Coates in Cambridgeshire and Cotes in Leicestershire. Others speculate that Coates family history originates in the seventh-century Old English cot or cote, meaning a humble cottage. This surname was frequently used in England during the medieval period and later was used as a descriptive word for shepherds, probably because they would be unlikely to own more than such a dwelling. Coates genealogy includes New Zealand Prime Minister Gordon Coates, composer and conductor Albert Coates, baseball pitcher Jim Coates, and operatic tenor John Coates.
