COOPER Family Tree

with links to British India

Cooper is an English occupational name for a maker or repairer of wooden vessels such as barrels, tubs, buckets, casks and vats. Its frequency bears witness to the fact that this was one of the chief specialist trades in the Middle Ages throughout Europe. Especially so in England where beer was drunk like water, and, naturally enough, needed to be stored somewhere.

The surname derives from the Middle English word ‘couper’ – which, in turn, originates from the Latin ‘cupa’ meaning cask. Indeed, in the Middle Ages, a maker or repairer of wooden vessels was called a ‘cuparius’ and this passed into English under various forms of spelling.
