I hope to start a Vipond DNA project soon, have a look at the Graves and Sykes web site see
links above, so you can see how we can connect up Vipond familys from all over the world. Any Viponds who wish to help please
contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org see DNA link above.
I believe that most with the Vipond name and its variants
will be related. These are the spellings of the name I have found so far: Vieuxpont, Veteripont Vezpont, Veepon, Vexpont,
Vipont, Vypont, Vispont, Vypunt, Vespont, Vipond, Vypond, Voypond, Veepond, Vippond, Vipon, Vipan, Vipen, If you consider
that the Name originated in France on or about 1066 as Vieuxpont and that in the 1851 England & Wales census there are
only about 279 Vipond’s and only about 67 of them head’s of households 1 Vipont Family and 30 Vipan's with 7 Heads
of households, then I do not believe that too many adopted the surname. Yes I am aware that there are some in America,
Australia, New Zealand
and Canada and a few in other countries
but that only represents about 100 families after 600 years!!!!
