The name Chopping comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name for a person noted for enjoying strong drink. The surname Chopping is derived from the Old French word chopine, which was an old medieval measure of liquid; referred to as "the Parisien halfe pint", it was nearly as large as an English pint. In modern times, the Old French word chopiner means to tipple. The surname Chopping may also be a patronymic name derived from the personal name Chopin.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Chopping were among those contributors: William Choppin who arrived in New York City in 1830.
