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
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.

Migration of the Chipping family to the New World and Oceana
Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America.

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:
