The Anglo-Saxon name Shepmind comes from when its first bearer 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.

Shepmind Early Origins



The surname Shepmind was first found in Herefordshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Shepmind Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Shepmind include Shipman, Shippman, Chipman, Shipham and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Shepmind or a variant listed above: 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.
