Welsh speaking Tippins family in Bishopswood (General)

by tippins @, Kent, Sunday, July 11, 2010, 17:31 (1875 days ago)

I think my Tippins family in Bishopswood were Welsh speaking and a lot of the surnames on tombstones in Walford church were Welsh,does anyone know how common Welsh
was in the early 1800s?

Hi Tippins could you tell me please where your family came from, in Wales. I am Welsh spoken and interested in Welsh History, perhaps I can help you.
Best wishes

My husbands great grandmother was Ellen Tippins who married an Edward Worgan. Could they have possibly been your relatives.

Gypsies in Wye Valley / Walford

by alexander @, Sevenoaks, Monday, April 30, 2012, 17:39 (1216 days ago) @ tippins

My Tippins family lived in and around Walford from the 1600s. An aunt told me that her sister went to visit her cousins and returned saying that she would never go again as "they were black Welsh devils". It seems that they were Welsh speaking but were they Gypsies. Does anyone know if Tippins is a Romany name?

Tippins - Herefordshire

by Jefff @, Monday, April 30, 2012, 21:03 (1215 days ago) @ m p griffiths

Hi Alex,
all I can add is that in modern times Tippins appears to be almost unigue to our neck of the woods, particularly Herefordshire judging from past Census statistics
http://gbnames.publicprofiler.org/Map2.aspx?name=TIPPINS&year=1881&altyear=1998...

However a quick "Google" also gave sites believing it was of Lancashire origin, or Devon, but without giving their reasoning !!??.

My preferred site states
"This interesting# surname with variant spellings Tippins, Typpens, etc., is a patronymic of the name Tippin, itself a diminutive of Tibb, a pet-form of the French personal name Theobald, from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements "theudo" meaning "people, race" plus "bald", "bold, brave". The surname dates back to the early 14th Century....."
The site adds "A Coat of Arms was granted to a Tippen family in Gloucestershire during the reign of King Henry V111 (1509 - 1547), consisting of a silver shield depicting three red lion's heads erased with gold crowns. Between the heads is a chevron with a central bezant (gold coin)."
So this supports it being a local surname of some importance.

http://www.surnamedb.com/Surname/Tipens

So, no specific mention of Romany origins although maybe it is from "travelling" people if it has French-Germanic origins via Lancs and/or Devon ??

# "interesting" = it seems it's almost anyone's guess !?!?

Romany Gipsy Connections FH Website

by Jefff @, Monday, April 30, 2012, 22:57 (1215 days ago) @ Jefff

Hi again Alex,
Googling the above I found this site which maybe of interest to you, I think it lists those people from the 1881 UK Census who appear to have Romany connections.
http://romanyconnections.wetpaint.com/page/1881+Census+for+Sweeps%3A

The reason Google found this site was it found this Tippins, the only one on the whole site and in our area, is he any relation/ancestor to you ??

William Tippins , Bc 1867 Mitchel Dean, Gloucestershire, England Adapted Son Newland, Gloucestershire.

I assume this should maybe read "Adopted Son" ?


Google also found this old Rootslink thread which maybe of interest, interestingly wrt the above it discusses Tippins as Romany sweeps in the Forest. It also lists some old census returns of Tippins households in the Ruardean hence Walford areas.
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,555069.msg4084411.html

It opens "i came across an article called 'Gypsies in the Forest of Dean' the lady who wrote it said her Dad could remember 3 main Gypsy Families as a youngster in the Forest who he learnt Romany from ,one of the families was named Tippins..."#

Another comment was " Try Tappin(s). I remember somewhere that this is a variation on Tapsell (Gypsy). Given the degree of illiteracy, a small change of accent can sometimes be the key."

Searching this site's PRs for these gives
Year Surname First Name Event Parish/Chapel More detail
1901 TAPSELL Daisy Gertrude Baptism Christchurch More detail
1904 TAPSELL Lilian May Baptism Christchurch More detail
1936 TAPSILL Ada Burial Christchurch More detail
1924 TAPSELL Daisy Gertrude Marriage Christchurch More detail
1939 TAPSELL May Lillian Marriage Christchurch More detail
1797 TAPPIN Robert Baptism Staunton near Newent More detail
1917 TAPPENS Gerard William Baptism Drybrook More detail
1917 TAPPENS Iris Eva Baptism Drybrook More detail

???

In the unlikely event you haven't already searched this forum, this prior thread re Romanies discusses the Ruardean Tippins & will hopefully be of interest. One poster comments "All the Tippins that I could find were born in the Forest but some did move to Wales.... I was sent some info on the Tippins family by some family who emigrated to New Zealand."
http://www.forum.forest-of-dean.net/index.php?id=19512


I hope at least some of this is of interest.
It all suggests to me that yes Tippins may well be a Romany name.

# The aforementioned article appears to be this one http://thelimehouse.blogspot.co.uk/2011/01/gypsies-in-forest-of-dean.html
A small excerpt states "A lot of gypsies camped in the Forest especially over the winter. A favourite place was the woods behind Crump Meadow Colliery. My Dad remembers three families, the Tingles, Tippins and Tingles. He knows a good bit of Romany from playing with the children."

TIPPINS Ruardean - prior thread

by Jefff @, Tuesday, May 01, 2012, 18:46 (1214 days ago) @ slowhands

Re the Rootswebb link,
Yes Slowhands I must admit when I read it I thought the layout rather looked like your fair hand, but being a relative newby to all this I assumed that you had maybe been on the Rootsweb site in times past and didn't realise the full history wrt who ndid what first. I did search this forum for prior threads albeit of a Romany nature so sorry missed this one. Either way as long as our efforts help Alexander or any others researchers I'm happy.
These cheeky people who shamelessly trawl the internet are SO annoying !
Jeff ;-)


(Altho in my defence I always acknowledge such sites where possible)

Another Huge Romany Gipsy FH Website

by Jefff @, Wednesday, May 09, 2012, 03:47 (1207 days ago) @ Jefff

Hi Alexander, I do hope you may have found something of this of help/interest ??, if not please ask again.

I've just found another huge website devoted to the history of Romany people in the UK, I thought you might like to know about it, apologies if you already knew it. This site is the trimmed-down Family History "offshoot" off the original site which also contains history, photos etc etc. I have used the site's own search engine looking for "Tippings, "Ruardean and "Walford" but sadly all without success. However its an impressive site and I'm sure will benefit from further research... Good luck !
