Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Allsup is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in Alsopenledale, a chapelry in the parish of Ashbourne, in the county of Derbyshire.

Allsup Early Origins



The surname Allsup was first found in the county of Derbyshire in the midland of England where they held a family seat from very ancient times. Their name was recorded in the Domesday Book, [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Allsups to arrive in North America:

Motto

Motto



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: Festina lente
Motto Translation: Be quick without impetuosity.
