Hore History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

The name Hore comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name for a person who had grey hair or appeared aged. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character. [1] Alternatively, the name could have been Norman in origin. In this case, it was derived from the "Norman-French pronunciation of Aure, with an aspirate. The name Aure, Alre, or Auré was a Breton name, derived from Auray, in Bretagne, of which the family were hereditary Castellans." [2] Another source claims the name was from Ore in Sussex and literally meant "dweller by the bank" from the Old Egnlish word "ora." [3]

The surname Hore was first found in Suffolk and Middlesex and other counties throughout Britain. By example, William Hore was listed in Suffolk in 1188, Robert, William le Hore was listed in the Assize Rolls of Staffordshire in 1203.

Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled.
