Where did the English Hopping family come from? What is the English Hopping family crest and coat of arms? When did the Hopping family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Hopping family history?

The many generations and branches of the Hopping family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member worked as a dancer. The surname Hopping is derived from the Old English word hoppian, which means to hop, to leap, or to dance.

Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Hopping were recorded, including Hopper, Hawper, Happer and others.

First found in Durham where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Subditus fidelis regis est salus regni
Motto Translation: A faithful subject of the king is a preserver of the monarchy.
