The origins of the Barpoyn name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the village of Barbon, about three miles north of Kirkby Lonsdale another small town in Cumbria, England, on the River Lune.
Early Origins of the Barpoyn family
The surname Barpoyn was first found in Westmorland, (now known as Cumbria) where they held a family seat at Barbon Manor from ancient times. Arguably the name could have originated from Barbourne, a parish in Worcestershire and if the surname originated in southern England, it is likely from this latter source. It seems that people from both locals claim their origin of the name as distinct. Barebone (1596-1679), the London leather merchant and preacher descended from the Worcestershire parish.

Migration of the Barpoyn family
To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Barpoyn family emigrate to North America: Marie Barbant, who came to Quebec in 1666; Joh Wolf Barben, who arrived in America in 1709; Anna Barben, who settled in America in 1709; Maria Barben, who came to America in 1709.
