The name Chipping is rooted in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It was originally a name for 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



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Chipping or a variant listed above:
