Hippkand History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The origins of the name Hippkand are from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the son of Herbert. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

In Old English, patronyms were formed by adding a variety of suffixes to personal names, which changed over time and from place to place. For example, after the Norman Conquest, sunu and sune, which meant son, were the most common patronymic suffixes. In the 12th and 13th centuries, the most common patronymic names included the word filius, which meant son. By the 14th century, the suffix son had replaced these earlier versions. Surnames that were formed with filius or son were more common in the north of England and it was here that the number of individuals without surnames was greatest at this time.


Early Origins of the Hippkand family


The surname Hippkand was first found in Norfolk and Suffolk, where the name was derived from "Hib and diminutive Hib-kin, sharpened to Hip and Hipkin." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 provide some of the earliest entries of early forms of the name: Hyppe (without surname), Norfolk; John Hyppe, Norfolk; and Lucia Hippo, Suffolk. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Another source notes Lefsius Hippe as being listed in the same rolls in Suffolk and John Hipecok in the Assize Rolls of Somerset in 1243. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Hippkand Spelling Variations


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Hippkand family name include Hipkin, Hippkin, Hipken, Hippken, Hipkins, Hipkens, Hippe, Hipp and many more.

Migration of the Hippkand family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Hippkand surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Mary Hipkins, who sailed to Barbados in 1679; John Hipp to Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1772; M. Hipkins to Baltimore, Maryland in 1822 and Bernard Hipp to Philadelphia in 1850..
