The present generation of the Framp family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in Frampton. There are several places called Frampton in England; they can be found in the counties Dorset, Gloucestershire, and Leicestershire having derived from the Celtic river name Frome, of which there were several in pre-Norman England. Frome meant fine or fair. The suffix is derived from tun, an Old English word that meant "farm" or "enclosure." The name as a whole meant "farm on the River Frome", which was a familiar Celtic river name meaning "fair" or "fine" + tun. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Framp Early Origins



The surname Framp was first found in Dorset, where the family resided at Moreton from 1385. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The village dates back to at least the Domesday Book where it was listed as Frantone. There are multiple listings of Frantone in the Domesday Book, specifically in Dorset, Gloucestershire, and in Lincolnshire. Some villages have extended the name as in Frampton Mansell, Frampton Cotterell and Frampton on Severn.

Framp Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Framp include Frampton, Framton, Framptoun, Framptown, Framptowne, Framtone, Framptone, Framtoun, Framptowne, Framptons and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Framp were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Richard Frampton settled in New England in 1783; William Frampton settled in New York in 1821. In Newfoundland, Joseph Framton settled in Trinity Bay in 1760.

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: Perseverando
Motto Translation: By perserving.
