The name Liptan is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived in the village of Lupton located in the county of Westmorland.

Liptan Early Origins

Lupton is an historic manor in the parish of Brixham, Devon and this manor dates back to the Domesday Book as Lochetone, lands held by Juhel of Totnes, within his feudal barony of Totnes. Much of the manor's interior was destroyed by fire in 1926, but was rebuilt and used during World War II by the American forces. In 2008, the Lupton Trust was established which uses the house and grounds for various functions to help with the costs of restoration.

Liptan Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Liptan are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Liptan or a variant listed above: David Lupton settled in Virginia in 1635; Captain Abraham Lipton, Crocketts Regiment; Jane and Arthur Lupton settled in New York in 1822 with their two children..
