Migration of the Chyppe family to the New World and Oceana
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 Chyppe were among those contributors: Edmond Chipps, who arrived in Virginia in 1635; Edmond Chipperfield, who came to Boston in 1635; John Chipper, who settled in Virginia sometime between 1654 and 1663.
