Pennsylvania

Vipons from Wales.
 

I have often looked at Welsh Viponds in the USA but until recently not been able to connect them. Recent information has lead me to believe that the Viponds that emigrated to Pennsylvania were from Llandovery Carmarthenshire Blaenavon Monmouthshire and from Aberdare Nr Merthyr Tydfil. However as always not all the pieces in the jigsaw fit!!! The oldest Viponds in Wales show up in both Cardiganshie and Carmarthenshire about 1750. As they were lead miners it is PROBABLE that the came to Wales from Alston or Garigill in Cumbria.

 

Two Vipond deaths occur at Blaenavon  Nicholas Aug 27th age 63 [Born 1765] and Samuel June 24th 1837 [born 1803]. I have a Nicholas born 1768 and A Samuel Born 1803 in Carmarthenshire. I think they moved to Balenavon with others.

 

David Vipond born Monmouthshire 1816 possibly brother of Samuel and William was I think the first Vipond from Wales to go to Philadelphia. He is in the 1850 USA census with wife Rebecca and son Joseph all born Wales.  His brother Samuel and probably his uncle Nicholas moved from Llandovery to Blaenavon  bf 1801. Samuel died June 24 1837 aged 34 he was the father of David S Vipond who is in the USA 1880 census in Philadelphia.

 

William Vipon born 1807 [see ships record below] and probably brother to David & Samuel above, was the father of William Vipond [1] born 1825 Cilycwm [1851 census at Aberdare Lodger] who went to USA abt 1855 with brothers Thomas [2] born 1828 who went on to Canada according to his descendent Phyllis and  Richard [3] possibly born 1839. Joseph Vipond [4] went to Australia in 1860.

 

William Vipond [1] married Susan Stitler has many decedents in the USA see descendent chart below kindly supplied by Bob Hadley. His first wife Elizabeth died in Wales 1853 he took his daughter Mary with him to the USA.

 

 Thomas Vipond [2] went on to Canada.

 

Richard Vipond [3] [Widow?] See passenger list below. Born Wales 1839 Children Born Penn Sarah Born 1862. Mary C Born 1861 William Born 1858. Richard Vipond arriver 1857 on the American Union

 

 

David S Vipond Born Wales 1830 age 50 [Widow?] Children Born Penn Virginia born 1854. Awando? Born 1859. Lilly Born 1862. Elizabeth Born 1864. A David Vipond is on the UK 1841 Census born Wales1830.

 

Nicholas Vipond Born Wales 1854 age 26 and Scharlot his wife born Wales 1861 have da age 1 in the 1880 USA census he is the son of Thomas [Father above mentioned Nicholas] and Elizabeth Vipond  as is his Brother John Vipond Born Wales 1857 married to Harriet  with daughter Mary age 3. In 1880 USA in Ohio.

 

Lots more work will need to be done on the above in Parish Registers and Civil register from 1837. However I am sure that these Pennsylvania Viponds who emigrated from Wales will be  related.
