Early Origins of the Vipend family
The surname Vipend was first found in Berwickshire

from early times. They were originally from Vieuxpont in Lisieux in Normandy
. The parish of Langton in Berwickshire
was an ancient family stronghold. "In the reign of David I., the manor [of Langton] belonged to Roger de Ow, a Northumbrian, who granted the church, with its appendages, to the abbey of Kelso, to which establishment it was confirmed by William de Vipont, a subsequent proprietor of the lands. On the death of Sir William Vipont, who fell in the battle of Bannockburn, in 1314, the estates passed, by marriage with his daughter and heiress, to the family of Cockburn." CITATION[CLOSE]
