COATES Family HistoryThere are two sources for this English name, the first being a locational name from any of the numerous places in England e.g., Coates in Cambridgeshire and Cotes in Leicestershire. A locational name was usually given to the lord of the manor at that place or to someone who moved from there to another village. The second source is topographical and would have denoted someone who lived in a relatively humble dwelling, a hut or cottage. The derivation is from the Old English pre 7th century "cot" or "cote" meaning cottage or shelter.

Hi, my father worked with a George Coates from Donegal Town in the 50's/60's, he was a film projectionist by night and foreman in Mc Mahon's garage was his day job.
