name Chybyn comes from when its first bearer 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.

surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations
. Changes in Anglo-Saxon
names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Chybyn include Chippin, Chipan, Chepyn, Chypyn, Chybyn, Chipping and others.

Migration of the Chybyn family to the New World and Oceana
Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Chybyn or a variant listed above: Edward Chipping, who came to Roanoke, VA in 1585; and George Chipping, who arrived in Canada in 1907.
