LIPSETT Family History

This is an old surname which has been recorded since at least the end of the 16th Century. It is probably a developed form of the medieval "hypet", one William Hypet being recorded in the Sussex Pipe Rolls of 1296. The name is therefore a patronymic and a development of the old English "Lippa", a nickname for a talkative person, plus the medieval French "petit", a shortened to "et" to give "son of Lipp" or "Little Lipp". The intrusive "s" is dialectal to aid pronunciation. The name recordings include Susana Lipsett who married Richard Atkeyson on July 31st 1670 at the famous church of St.
