An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Plumber finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a seller of plumes and feathers. Occupational names that were derived from the common trades of the medieval era transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries. Occupational names have remained fairly commonplace in the modern period. This is attested to by the continuing appearance of occupational suffixes at the end of many English surnames. Some of these suffixes include: herd, monger, maker, hewer, smith and wright.

Plumber Early Origins



The surname Plumber was first found in Durham where they held a family seat from early times. The family name Plumber first appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Plumber Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Plumber has been recorded under many different variations, including Plumer, Plummer, Plumber and others.

Motto

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: Consulto et audacter
Motto Translation: With prudence and daring.
