The ancestors of the bearers of the Luptin family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in the village of Lupton located in the county of Westmorland.

Luptin Early Origins



The surname Luptin 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.

Luptin Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Luptin include Lupton, Lipton and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Luptin 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..
