The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Alspaugh has been spelled many different ways, including Allsopp, Allsop, Alsopp, Alsop, Elleshope and others.

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] a census taken by King William in 1086. At this time the name was spelt Elleshope. In 1175 Gamel Allsopp was recorded as having estates in or about the village of Alsop, in Derbyshire.

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 Alspaughs to arrive in North America: Joseph Alsop who settled in New Haven in 1635; in 1647 he married Elizabeth Preston; John Alsop settled in Pennsylvania in 1682; Richard Alsopp arrived in Barbados in 1680.

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.
