My father knows more than I do, but yes, the name means something like kin of Hipper. It appears to originate in a place called Rowley Regis about 40 miles from Birmingham in England. My father has seen the Parish registry that goes back at least to the mid 1500's and there are variations on the name dating back that far.
Interestingly the only place where you will find more than a handful of Hipkisses in the phone book is for the Birmingham area, which is where my grandparents originated from.
