Details

This name is found in the records of most parts of Scotland. Its spelling varies: Cooper, Coupar,Couper and Cowper are all usual. It is thought that the names largely derive from the town of Cupar in Fife, since most of the early recordings refer to people and place in Fife. But the trade of “cooper”, of barrel-maker, certainly contributed many lines to the “family”. For example, a payment made in 1329 is to Alanus Cuparius (Alan the Cooper). However, with the exception of a few families who can trace their tree back to the fifteenth century, the two origins are now indistinguishable and all Coopers, of whatever spelling, may be considered of the same “family”. One of their most distinguished sons was the poet, William Cowper who wrote “I am originally of the same shire (Fife) and a family of my name is still there”.
