The Coverdale record in England has gone back to pre-1488, the era of Miles  Coverdale, who wrote the first English translation of the Bible. Another record  lists the names of Coverdale on the tax roll in the County of Norfolk, England  in 1198. 
 As far back as 1694, a Thomas Coverdale witnessed a will for a neighbour in  Sussex County. In 1723, a Richard Coverdale, age 34, helped in dividing land in  Sussex.
 There were definitely two different awards of Coats of Arms: one by King Henry  VIII and the other by King Edward VI. 
 By 1760, several Coverdale and Coverdill families were living in Sussex and  Kent Counties at Manitoke, Delaware, USA. The first church at Manitoke  Hundred , Sussex County, Delaware, was established near Coverdale Cross Roads  on July 30, 1785. (The Hundred is a political land division)   A family of Coverdales arrived from England in 1735, stopped in Delaware, then  moved southward to Kentucky and Ohio. In 1799, a Coverdale and a Coverdill  served in the Delaware Militia. 
 Some of the Coverdales came to America from England in their own vessels with  their own crew. One vessel, coming from England, disappeared on the way to the  West Indies. 
 William`s (1765-1828 ) daughters, Hannah and Margaret and sons William, John  and George emigrated to Canada in 1831 or 1832 along with a nephew Thomas.  Other members of the Coverdale family were lost at sea in their own ship.  William`s son John, and six children died in a boat accident on the St.  Lawrence River. John`s wife, Elizabeth (or Margaret Balfour?) survived and re- married a Mr. Hewin (or Hewitt??)
 Many of the Coverdales were born in Danby,North Yorkshire, England. The  definition of Danby is: `Dan`, means the place allotted to ` Dane `, a Viking  invader with the force that took Yorkshire and Northumbrian lands about  875. `By` means the colonists` farmlands. The population of Danby in 1831 was  1392 people.
