Northover History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Northover family

The surname Northover was first found in Somerset 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 1189 when Robert Nothover held estates. The name derives from Nothover on the banks of the River Yeo.
