The ancestors of the Lupton surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the village of Lupton located in the county of Westmorland.

Lupton Early Origins



The surname Lupton 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

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
