Cope Family Crest

Cope Family CrestThe medieval Scottish Irish and English name Cope is derived from the Middle English term cope meaning “a cloak or a cape” (from Old English cap reinforced by the Old Norse cognate kápa), hence a metonymic occupational name for someone who made cloaks or capes, or a nickname for someone who wore a distinctive one. The first reference to the name Cope was Maud Cope who appeared in the Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire, dated 1275. On July 17th 1635, Richard Cope, aged 24 yrs., embarked from London on the ship "Blessing", bound for New England.
