Tipton Early Origins



The surname Tipton was first found in Shropshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Norman influence of English history dominated after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. The family name was first referenced in the 11th century when they held estates in that shire. They were descended from a Norman noble Tibetot (Thibaudeau) from Poitou who followed into England after the Norman Conquest, probably invited by King Henry 1st. The stature of this noble cannot be questioned, his descendent being Baron Pain de Tibetot,(1308) later, Lord John de Tiptoft being elevated to the Earldom of Worcester in 1461. He may have been related to Walter of Worcester who signed the Magna Carta in 1214.
