Notes for Michael Turpin I:

From: "OUR KIN"

Coat of arms: "A griffin passant, with wings addorsed."
Rairberne's Book of Cresta

The Turpins are of a ancient Norman family, though the name is said to be derived from the old Scandanavian. Acombination of Thor-Finn, that is, plus the ethnic name Finn, and written as one, Thorfin. By 1086 it is found spelled Turfin in the Domesday Book, and in 1202 we find record of a Walter Turpin who held land in Dorset.

The eight century archbishop of Rheims of that name figures in the Chanson de Roland, and in Pfaffen Komad's twelfth century version of the Chanson he is called "Ther Bicof Turpin".

"His name, (quoth he) if this thou list to learne,
Is hight Sir Turpin, one of mickle might."
Spencer's Faerie Queen

Gentleman's Magazine, vol 7, an item about the old monument to John Turpin, his coat of arms, etc. A reference to Robert Gobion. The inscription on the monument is in Latin. Mentions the old stone tower built by John Turpin in the reign of Henry VII.

Genealogical Gleaning in England; a reference to Gobino's Manor, and a footnote; "From Bridge's History of Northamptonshire, I find that 'Gobion's Manor' was about three hundred acres, 'lying without the gate' (of the city) and was long held by the Turpins, but, about 1600 it came into possession of the Harrisons."

Michael Turpin, the emigrant, came from Yorkshire, England, about 1655, bought lands in 1656 from Colonel William Farrar, of Farrar's Island, called "Henrico". He is the emigrant ancestor of the Turpins in Virginia, Kentucky, &c. His will is dated July 4, 1663, or 1673. He had several sons, among them being:

Phillip, born Yorkshire, England, 1655; married Martha Skirm
of Henrico and died 1717. He left issue.

John, born about 1660.

Matthew, born 1664; married Sarah Hatcher, daughter of Edward Hatcher and died 1689. He had sons, Henry and Mathew; daughter, Cicely.
The widow married, October 16, 1689, Jos. Tanner.
Mathew Turpins estate divided December 1, 1689. (Deed Book 5, page 104, Henrico County Records.)

Michael; Probably married, a Farrar. Sons: Michael and John.
