An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


When the ancestors of the Dampere family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They lived in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. The family was originally from Dampiere and Orne, Normandy, and it is from the former location that their surname derives.

Dampere Early Origins



The surname Dampere was first found in Lincolnshire where they had been granted lands by William the Conqueror for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Dampere Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Dampere has been recorded under many different variations, including Dampier, Damper, Demper, Dempier, Dammper, Dammpier, Dampere, Dampar, Dampir, Dampare, Dampire, Dammpare and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Damperes were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Alex Dampier settled in Virginia in the year 1653.

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: Dominus petra mea
Motto Translation: The Lord is my rock.
