Pype is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived 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 Pype may also be derived from the word piper.

Pype Early Origins



The surname Pype 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]

Pype Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Pype family name include Pipe, Pipes and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Pype surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Jonathon Pipes who settled in Fort Cumberland, Nova Scotia, Canada, along with William and William Senior in 1774.
