Baggshott History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The history of the Baggshott family goes back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the family living in Derbyshire, where they were found since the early Middle Ages before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Early Origins of the Baggshott family


The surname Baggshott was first found in Derbyshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066. The first record was of Nicholas Bagshawe who married Alice of the Hall. He was forester to the King. He acquired the lands of Wormhill, and later built Wormhill Hall.

Baggshott Spelling Variations


Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Baggshott include Bagshaw, Bagshawe, Bagshott, Bagshot, Bagshote and others.

Migration of the Baggshott family to the New World and Oceana


Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Baggshott or a variant listed above: Henry Bagshaw who settled in New England in 1751; Ben Bagshaw settled in Maryland in 1699; William Bagshaw who settled in Pennsylvania in 1867.

The Baggshott 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: Forma floss
Motto Translation: Beauty is a flower.
