The origins of the Shepphpment surname lie with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name Shepphpment began when someone in that family 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.

Migration of the Shepphpment family to the New World and Oceana


At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Shepphpment arrived in North America very early: 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.
