Migration of the Hipson family
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Hipson or a variant listed above: Persival, Elizabeth and Anne Ibotson, who sailed to Virginia in 1623. Arthur William Ibbotson sailed to Philadelphia in 1852; Harvey Ibbotson to Philadelphia in 1854.
