Repingtoom is a name that was brought to England by the ancestors of the Repingtoom family when they migrated to the region after the Norman Conquest in 1066. The Repingtoom family lived in Derbyshire, at Repton, from whence they adapted their name.

Repingtoom Early Origins



The surname Repingtoom 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.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Repingtoom were among those contributors: Fran Reppington, who settled in Virginia in 1666; as well as John Reppinton who landed in North America in 1710.

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