Jupps History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Jupps family

The surname Jupps 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]

Migration of the Jupps family

Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Juppss to arrive in North America: Anthony Jupe, who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1630; and Charles Jubb, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1844.
