The ancient roots of the Nyppe family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Nyppe comes from when the family lived on the peak of a hill or highland. The surname Nyppe is primarily familiar in the regions of Lancashire and Westmorland.

Nyppe Early Origins



The surname Nyppe was first found in North Lancashire, in the Cartmel parish where much of the surname died out very early and moved to surrounding districts. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Nyppe arrived in North America very early: Samuel Knipe, who sailed to St. Christopher in 1635; Samuel Knipe to America in 1699; Christian Knipe to Philadelphia in 1749; Oscar Knipe to Pennsylvania in 1851 and G.J. Knipe to San Francisco in 1860..
