Galliott History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 brought many new words to England from which surnames were formed. Galliott was one of these new Norman names. It was specifically tailored to its first bearer, who was a happy, joyous, and bold person. The name Galliott derives from the nickname the galliard, which means the bold or the joyous.

Early Origins of the Galliott family


The surname Galliott was first found in county Devon where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Galliott Spelling Variations


A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Gaylord, Gaillard, Galliard, Gaylor, Gayleard and others.

Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Galliott or a variant listed above:
