Origen: Normando. The name Quaife was originally developed by the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a maker of knitted caps or cowls. A male involved in this occupation was called a coifer, while a female involved in this trade was called a coifster; the latter case displays the distinctive Anglo-Saxon female occupational suffix -ster. First found in Oxfordshire, where they were seated from ancient times.
