Early Origins of the Shepperson family
The surname Shepperson was first found in Durham
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 12th century. They were later found in Cumberland
in 1332 when John Schephirdson held estates in that county.
