Hamp History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, Irish


The ancestors of the Hamp surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the village of Hampton in the dioceses of Worcester, Hereford, London, Exeter, and Lichford.

Early Origins of the Hamp family


The surname Hamp was first found in Staffordshire where they were recorded as a family of great antiquity seated at Wolverhampton with manor and estates in that shire. However, the name has three distinct origins: from the Old English word ham-tun as in "home farm, homestead"; from the Old English words hamm + tun, meaning "farmstead in an enclosure or river bend"; and finally from the Old English hean + tun meaning "high farmstead."
