The clans of the ancient Scottish Pictish tribe were the ancestors of the first person to use the name Paipe. It was name for a confident or haughty person. Paipe is a nickname surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Nicknames form a broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, and can refer directly or indirectly to one's personality, physical attributes, mannerisms, or even their habits of dress. The surname Paipe comes from the Old English word pope, which referred to the Bishop of Rome, and the head of the Roman Catholic Church. Although this is also a title of office, as a surname, it was most often applied as a nickname.

Paipe Early Origins



The surname Paipe was first found in Caithness (Gaelic: Gallaibh), the northern tip of Scotland, a Norse/Viking controlled region from the 9th century, which became the Earldom of Caithness, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Scotland to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The cruelties suffered under the new government forced many to leave their ancient homeland for the freedom of the North American colonies. Those who arrived safely found land, freedom, and opportunity for the taking. These hardy settlers gave their strength and perseverance to the young nations that would become the United States and Canada. Immigration and passenger lists have shown many early immigrants bearing the name Paipe: Elizabeth Pope, who was on record in Virginia in 1621; Thomas Pope, on record in Virginia in 1623; George Pope, who came to Jamestown, VA in 1624; Anthony Pope, who arrived in Massachusetts in 1635.
