The ancestry of the name Lipton dates from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from when the family lived in the village of Lupton located in the county of Westmorland.

Lipton Early Origins



The surname Lipton was first found in Westmorland at Lupton, now part of Cumbria. The township in the parish of Kirkby Lonsdale dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Lupetun [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

and literally meant "farmstead of a man called Hluppa," from the Old English personal name + "tun." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

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.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Lipton, or a variant listed above:
