DIPPENHALL is found on Victorian Maps, Domesday and early documents including the” Kings Remeberancer” References specifically in latin and Middle English DUPENHALE which may have been root of the place that became the manor of DIPPENHALL in CRONDALL HUNDRED.
Yet again some intriguing historic Maps reveal the derrivatives that now with the progress of mapping so many references probably indicate that it is a SURNAME based on the place of habitation.
In the always useful for family historians old Hampshire Gazetter there are a number of references which we will attempt to substantiate and reference over time in this post.
Here are some instances that have emerged thus far, we will seek to verify the transcriptions but given what we have been lucky to discover here, it seems the likely origin of the surname is rooted in DIPPENHALL, which whilst it became part of SURREY was historically part of the old county of Hampshire (Southamptonshire.)
But let’s review the basic facts and try and check the maps check the transcriptions:
19th Century Victorian Dippenhall Map, that confirms location of the manor and hamlet/village, it defintely existed.
Google Earth shows both DIPPENHALL RD and CRONDALL ROAD and the satellite imagery also relates to the evidence of the Victorian Map
The current OS reference is SU8146.
Late 18th Century Maps: the Gazette references 1788 Harrison Map Showing DIPNALL within Crondall Hundred.
- DIPNOL on MAP 1595
- DIPNOLL on MAP circa 1607 Camden see below
- loads of maps to reference but need more time do later at the weekend.
