The name Framptome is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when a family 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]

Framptome Early Origins



The surname Framptome 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.

Framptome Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Framptome family name include Frampton, Framton, Framptoun, Framptown, Framptowne, Framtone, Framptone, Framtoun, Framptowne, Framptons and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Framptome surname or a spelling variation of the name include : 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.
