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 Ipcok family


The surname Ipcok 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]

Ipcok Spelling Variations


Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Ipcok include Hipkin, Hippkin, Hipken, Hippken, Hipkins, Hipkens, Hippe, Hipp and many more.

Migration of the Ipcok family to the New World and Oceana


Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Ipcok or a variant listed above: 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..
