Lipsey History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Early Origins of the Lipsey family
The surname Lipsey was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1297 when William held estates in that shire.
