Peling History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, Welsh


The name Peling predates the arrival of the Normans in Britain, and as such is one of the older names in the British Isles. As a surname, Peling is thought to be derived from the place named Peelings in Sussex (on record in the Domesday Book of 1066 as Pellinges). This place name is in turn thought to be derived from the Old English word "Pydelingas," or "the people of Pydel."

Early Origins of the Peling family


The surname Peling was first found in Lewes, Sussex where a Hammyng de Pellyng was on record in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex in 1296. Other early records include a William Pelling recorded in 1222, in the Building Accounts of King Henry III, Wylelmus Pylyng, recorded in the Poll Tax for Yorkshire in 1379. As far as the origin of the name, Pilling means "creek" and while creeks are quite common throughout England, the name is not.

The Peling Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Deo ducente nil nocet
Motto Translation: When God leads nothing hurts.
