Multiple Origins for the Surname Shippee


Scottish


The descendants of the Boernician tribe of ancient Scotland were the first to use Shippee as a surname. It is a name for a shepherd, one who guarded sheep. In Scotland, the name was often Latinized as pastor in early charters. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

In this latter case, the Biblical reference to paschal lamb, the Lamb of God or Agnus Dei should be understood.

Shippee Early Origins



The surname Shippee was first found in Peebles, where William and Walter Shepherd (recorded in the Latin form "Pastor") were cited in legal documents in the year 1262. One hundred years later we find a branch of the family in Morayshire, where Henricus Scyphard held land in Elgin in 1363. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



When these Boernician-Scottish settlers arrived in North America they brought little with them and often had restart their lives from scratch. Through time, much of their heritage was lost, and it is only this century through Clan societies and highland games that many have recovered their national heritage. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Shippee family to immigrate North America: John Shepherd, who sailed from Aberdeen to Quebec in 1834 and settled near Brantford Ontario; John Shepherd was a Loyalist with the Royal Garrison Battalion, who moved to Nova Scotia in 1784..
