The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Hipson has been recorded under many different variations, including Ibbetson, Ibbotson, Ibbitson, Ibetson, Ibotson, Ibitson, Ibbet, Ibbot, Ibbit, Ibiot, Ibboteson, Ibotessone, Ibbison and many more.
First found in Yorkshire, where they were a major north country family.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Hipson or a variant listed above: Persival, Elizabeth and Anne Ibotson, who sailed to Virginia in 1623. Arthur William Ibbotson sailed to Philadelphia in 1852; Harvey Ibbotson to Philadelphia in 1854.
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Vixi liber et moriar
Motto Translation: I have lived a freeman and will die one.
The Hipson Family Crest was acquired from the Houseofnames.com archives. The Hipson Family Crest was drawn according to heraldic standards based on published blazons. We generally include the oldest published family crest once associated with each surname.
