The Ping family comes from the ancient Scottish Dalriadan clans of the mountainous west coast of Scotland. The name Ping is derived from the personal name Payne. Ping is a patronymic surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Although this interpretation of the etymology of the surname Ping is uncertain, it is generally accepted at the present time.

Ping Early Origins



The surname Ping was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Dalriadan families proliferated in North Ameri ca. Their descendants still populate many communities in the eastern parts of both the United States and Canada. Some settled in Canada as United Empire Loyalists, in the wake of the American War of Independence. Families on both sides of the border have recovered much of their heritage in the 20th century through Clan societies and highland games. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Ping or a variant listed above:
