Vipond History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, Scottish


The Vipond surname is of Norman origin, coming originally from a place called Vieuxpont in Calvados, France.

Early Origins of the Vipond family


The surname Vipond was first found in Berwickshire an ancient county of Scotland, presently part of the Scottish Borders Council Area, located in the eastern part of the Borders Region of Scotland, where they held a family seat 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." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
