A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Chipperfield from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"CHIPPERFIELD, a hamlet-chapelry in Kings-Langley parish, Herts; near the Grand Junction canal, 2½ miles W of Kings-Langley [railway] station, and 4¼ N of Rickmansworth. It has a post office under Watford. Population: 569. The living is a [perpetual] curacy in the diocese of Rochester. Value: £174. Patrons: Trustees."

Chipperfield remained a hamlet and chapelry in Kings Langley parish until 1958 when it became a civil parish in Hemel Hempstead Rural District. When the Dacorum District was formed in 1974, it ceased to be a separate civil parish and instead became part of the modern Bovingdon, Flaunden and Chipperfield civil parish.
