Rippin History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancestors of the Rippin surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the region of Ripon in Hevingham. Rippin is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties.

Early Origins of the Rippin family


The surname Rippin was first found in the cathedral city of Ripon in the West Riding of Yorkshire. Today this market town located on the River Ure boasts as one of the oldest places where a monastery has stood since the 7th century. One of the first on record was Roger de Ripun who was listed of burgess of Aberdeen in 1271. Ten years later in 1281, records show Henry de Ripon was listed as a witness to a charter in Dundee. A few years later, Walter de Rypon or Rypun was burgess of Edinburgh in 1296.

Migration of the Rippin family to the New World and Oceana


A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:

The Rippin Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Frangas non flectes
Motto Translation: Thou may'st break, but shalt not bend me.
