Origins Available: German, Scottish


The Picts were the ancient Scottish tribe where the ancestors of the Lippe family lived. The name Lippe comes from the Old English personal names Leppe or Lippe, which are derived from the Old English name Leofa. Occasionally, the surname Lippe may be a pet form of the name Philip, or it may be a nickname applied to someone with large lips or with some peculiarity of the lip.

Lippe Early Origins



The surname Lippe was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



The crossing to North America did not seem so great in comparison with the hardships many Scots endured at home. It was long, expensive, and cramped, but also rewarding. North America offered land and the chance for settlers to prove themselves in a new place. And many did prove themselves as they fought to forge a new nation in the American War of Independence. The ancestors of those Scots can now experience much of their once-lost heritage through the Clan societies and highland games that have sprung up across North America in the last century. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important, early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Lippe:

Lippe Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Henrich Lippe, who landed in New York, NY in 1782

Lippe Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Georg Phil Lippe, who arrived in America in 1849
  • Henry Lippe, who arrived in Texas in 1850-1906
  • J H Lippe, who landed in America in 1871

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Virtute non vi
Motto Translation: By virtue not by force.
