    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Ripley (Derbyshire, Hampshire, Surrey, Yorkshire). The Hampshire and Surrey placenames derive from Old English ripel, rippel ‘strip of land’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’. The Yorkshire placename probably derives from the Anglian tribe name Hrype + Old English lēah. The Derbyshire placename may derive from Old English ripel, rippel or the Anglian tribe name Hrype + Old English lēah.

    History: William Ripley (died 1656) came from Wymondham, Norfolk, England, to Hingham, MA, in 1638.
