    Name Meaning

    English (of Norman origin): habitational name from any of several places in Normandy called Pierrepont, e.g. Pierrepont (Seine-Maritime), Pierrepont (Calvados), Saint-Nicolas-de-Pierrepont (Manche), or Saint-Sauveur-de-Pierrepont (Manche), so called from Old French pierre ‘stone’ + pont ‘bridge’.

    History: All the New England Pierpont lines seem to be descended from James and his sons John and Robert, who came to North America c. 1640. James also may have had a brother Robert who was part of that group. The southern Pierpo(i)nt family are descended from Henry, who came to the VA–MD region in 1635.
