The name Chepyn is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name was taken on by someone who worked as a trader at the market. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the occupational name Cheaper, further derived from the Old English ceping or cieping which means "market." Alternatively (as some scholars argue), the surname Chipping is of local origin, signifying "one who dwelled by the ceping or marketplace". Chipping is also the name of a village and parish in the archdeaconry of Lancaster.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Edward Chipping, who came to Roanoke, VA in 1585; and George Chipping, who arrived in Canada in 1907.
