The Anglo-Saxon name Jump comes from when the family resided in the hamlet of Jump, which is in the parish of Wombwell in Yorkshire. The parish of Wombwell was the property of Roger de Bully and Walter d'Aincourt at the time of the Domesday Book and has long been the site of coal-mining and iron-founding. The surname Jump belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Jump Early Origins



The surname Jump was first found in the West Riding of Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



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 Jump or a variant listed above:

Jump Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • William Jump, who landed in Maryland in 1664

Jump Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • William Jump, who sailed to America in 1755
