Pipes History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Anglo-Saxon name Pipes comes from when the family resided in Somerset. While it is generally regarded that the name was from this area, the first records of the name are scattered throughout Englsand. The surname Pipes may also be derived from the word piper.


Early Origins of the Pipes family


The surname Pipes was first found in Staffordshire at Field, a township, in the parish of Leigh, union of Uttoxeter, S. division of the hundred of Totmonslow. " It anciently belonged to Burton Abbey, of which it was long held by the family of Pipe, from whom it passed to the Bagots." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Pipes or a variant listed above:
