The Anglo-Saxon name Frampton comes from when the family resided 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]

Frampton Early Origins



The surname Frampton 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.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:

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.
