Pulteney History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Early Origins of the Pulteney family
The surname Pulteney was first found in Leicestershire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. Conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Poultney, held by Ralph from the Bishop of Lincoln, who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086.
One of the first records of the family was Sir John de Pulteney or Poultney (died 1349). He was Mayor of London, son of Adam Neale de Clipston of Weston, Sussex, and grandson of Hugh de Pulteney, of Pulteney, Poutenei, or Pultonheith, in Misterton, Leicestershire. "His father succeeded to the estate at Pulteney in 1308, and had married Maud de Napton. John de Pulteney was mainpernor for certain merchants on 9 Nov. 1316, and is mentioned as a citizen of London on 5 May 1322. He was Mayor of London in 1331 and 1332."
