ROPER Family HistoryRecorded as Reef, Reff, Rope, Roope, Roper, Rooper, Raper, Rapier (English), Riep, Repp, Reef (German), Reep, Reeper, Reepmaeker (Flemish and Dutch), and probably others, this is a surname of ancient origins. It is derived from the pre 7th century word "rap", meaning a rope, with where appropriate, the agent suffix "-er", meaning literally "one who does", and occupational for a rope maker. The surname is first recorded in England in the early medieval period and examples include Richard le Ropere in the Curia Regis Rolls of Hertfordshire in the year 1220, and Robertus Roper in the poll tax registers of Yorkshire in 1379.
