Repingteen is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Repingteen family lived in Derbyshire, at Repton, from whence they adapted their name.

Repingteen Early Origins



The surname Repingteen was first found in Lincolnshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of the Leache. The first on record was Simon of Repington, about 1080 A.D., probably a junior son of a Norman noble of Lincolnshire. His son and heir, Ralph Repington was living at the Manor of Leache in 1104. He was succeeded by Roger Repington of the same place, and succeeded by Sir Richard Repington who was Lord of the Manor of Faukingham, Danderbie and Thorpe in the Willowes. He was living in 1173. Sir Richard was slain in a joust at Woodstock held before the King in 1178.

Repingteen Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Repington, Reppington, Repinton, Reppinton, Reppingtone and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Repingteen or a variant listed above: Fran Reppington, who settled in Virginia in 1666; as well as John Reppinton who landed in North America in 1710.

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: Virtus propter se
Motto Translation: Virtue for its own sake.
