Where did the English Jump family come from? What is the English Jump family crest and coat of arms? When did the Jump family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Jump family history?

The Anglo-Saxon name Jump comes from when the family resided in the hamlet of Jump, which is in the parish of Wombwell in Yorkshire. The parish of Wombwell was the property of Roger de Bully and Walter d'Aincourt at the time of the Domesday Book and has long been the site of coal-mining and iron-founding. The surname Jump belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

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. Jump has been recorded under many different variations, including Jump, Jumpe and others.

First found in the West Riding of Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.
