Lothrop History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Lothrop surname is derived from a medieval given name of uncertain origins.

Early Origins of the Lothrop family


The surname Lothrop was first found in Kent where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1162 when Alwin Loth held estates in that shire. In 1275 William Lot held in Suffolk.
