The name Chypyn is Anglo-Saxon
in origin. It was a name given to 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.

years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations
in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon
and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Chypyn include Chippin, Chipan, Chepyn, Chypyn, Chybyn, Chipping and others.

Migration of the Chypyn family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England
at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Chypyn were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Edward Chipping, who came to Roanoke, VA in 1585; and George Chipping, who arrived in Canada in 1907.
