Name Meaning

English (southwestern England, of Norman origin) and French: nickname from Middle English cofin, coffin, Old French cof(f)in (from Late Latin cophinus, Greek kophinos) ‘container, basket; coffer, chest (for keeping treasures, documents, armour, etc.)’. Early bearers of this as a hereditary surname were of knightly rank. Old French cofin was synonymous with coffer, and it may be that Cofin was used to denote a keeper of the (royal) coffer, attested in Anglo-Latin cofferarius. Compare Coffer . The modern English word coffin is a specialized development of this term, not attested until the 16th century.History: Tristram Coffin came from Brixham, Devon, to Haverhill, MA, before 1647. An important line of his descendants is associated with Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.
