The surname Gilpins was first found in Westmorland where they held a family seat after the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.

The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Gilpins has been recorded under many different variations, including Gilpin, Gilpins, Gylpin, de Gilpin and others.

To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Gilpinss were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Anthony Gilpin, who settled in Barstable, Massachusetts about 1640; Jane Gilpin settled in Virginia in 1652; Dynes, George, John, Thomas, and William Gilpin settled in Pennsylvania between 1807 and 1860.
