Heatherington History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The surname Heatherington is a name whose history on English soil dates back to the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066. The Heatherington family lived in Hetherington in Northumberland. The "E" prefix, as in the name Etherington, is a shortened form of the name and has the same phonetic sound. [1]

Early Origins of the Heatherington family

The surname Heatherington was first found in Northumberland at Hetherington. This ancient Saxon village was derived from the word "haeth", meaning a heath and "tun" a settlement, thus "the farm of the heath." [2]

Edmund de Hetherynton was listed in the Assize Rolls of Northumberland in 1316. [3] But before that, Richard de Hetherington was listed in the Assize Rolls of 1298 eighteen years before. [3]

"The Hetheringtons, who have their present home in Carlisle and its neighbourhood, belong to an ancient border - family that often produced persons of note; in the reign of Henry VIII. George Hethrington, as king's bailiff, "kept watch and ward" in the parish of Kirklinton, on the west marches (H.). Ambrose Hetherington was vicar of Kendal in the reign of Elizabeth." [4]
