Origins of surname

The name derives from a maker of barrels or tubs. The origin is Anglo Saxon, deriving from the German kuper itself a derivative of kup - a container. This is one of the oldest English surnames, derived from a word first used in the 8th century. Over the centuries the spelling and the later surname became confused with other forms such as Cowper and Copper, which can also describe a maker of metal containers.
