Jopp History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Jopp family

The surname Jopp was first found in Cornwall where as a forename Jop serviens Osulf was listed in the Pipe Rolls of 1185. A few years later, again as a forename, Joppe filius Hardekin was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Lincolnshire in 1199, Jubbe de Donerwiz was found in Suffolk in 1275, and Job Molendinar was found in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex in 1296. [1]

The first entry as a surname was Walter Jobbe who was found in the Subsidy Rolls for Worcestershire in 1275, followed by Eudo le Jope in the Subsidy Rolls for Surrey in 1290. In Sussex, William Jopes was listed in the Subsidy Rolls there in 1296 as was Richard Joup, Joop in the same rolls for 1327 and 1332. [1]

One source claims the name is "an old surname in Yorkshire. It is the northern English form of Job. In the reign of Edward Langshanks (1273) the name is represented as Jubbe in the wapentake of Osgoldcross. " [2]

"Jupp is a Surrey as well as a Sussex name. The name of Joop occurred in the parish of Clapham in the reign of Henry IV. (D.). Just as Joop in this part of England has been transformed into Jupp, so Joop and Joope anciently in Wiltshire have been transformed into the modern Jupe." [3]

The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 included: Elyas Jubbe in Suffolk; and Warin Jubbe in Yorkshire. The Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 listed Johannes Jubbe and Ricardus Jubbe. [4]

Jopp 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 Jopp include Jubb, Jubbe, Jub, Juppe, Jopp, Jupp, Job, Jobson and others.

United States Jopp migration to the United States +

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 Jopp or a variant listed above:
