ORIGIN: The name belongs to a town in Suffolk, England, which is located at the mouth of the Orwell River. Possibly Ipswich derives from Old English gip indicating mouth, and wic indicating farm. Gipeswic appears in an Anglo-Saxon Chronicle of 993 A.D. Possibly Gipps' sense of humour prompted him to include a reference to his own name in the Australian town name.
HISTORY: Originally Limestone from 1827, Ipswich was the town name approved by Sir George Gipps (1791-1847) soldier and Governor of New South Wales 1837-46. Gipps approved the plan submitted by Henry Wade ( - ) surveyor, in 1843, showing the name Ipswich.
