The history of the name Shephpmyn dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from a member of the family who worked as a person who worked as a mariner or as a ship-builder. Occupational names frequently were derived from the principal object associated with the activity of the original bearer, such as tools or products. These types of occupational surnames are called metonymic surnames. The most common suffixes for occupational names are maker, herd, hewer, smith, er, ing, and man.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Shephpmyn were among those contributors: William Shipman settled in Virginia in 1635; Edward Shipman settled in Saybrook in 1639; and he was from the Nottingham branch of the name, and he was the sire of the distinguished U.S. family of Connecticut.
