Catchlove History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The name Catchlove finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a medieval policeman, called a cacherel. The name comes from the weapon carried by the cacherel, called a catchpole, used to hold people around the head so as to subdue them. The cacherel was often colloquially referred to the weapon he carried.

Early Origins of the Catchlove family

The surname Catchlove was first found in Dorset 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.
