Arnold Lupton MP and other members of the family contributed both to the political life of the UK and to the civic life of Leeds well into the 20th century Several members were well acquainted with the British Royal Family and were philanthropists Some were Lord Mayors of Leeds and progressive in their views They were associated with the Church of England and the Unitarian church The Lupton Residences of the University of Leeds are named after members of the family, and the law firm established by solicitor Sir Charles Lupton as Dibb-Lupton which after a merger became DLA Piper
