Downey Genealogy & History

Hopper, an English-Scottish surname, has an interesting derivation from Old English hoppian (to hop) and originally referred to professional acrobats/dancers or alternatively was a nickname for someone energetic. Hopper family history dates to feudal times in Durham, England, where they held a family seat. The family motto, subditus fidelis regis est salus regni, means a faithful subject of the king is a preserver of the monarchy. The towers on the family crest and coat of arms signify grandeur. American Hopper genealogy dates from the 1660s in Maryland and includes Grace Murray Hopper, who conceptualized computer programming languages and has a Navy destroyer and a super-computer named for her.
