Semper Early Origins



The surname Semper was first found in Essex where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Norman influence on English history dominated after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. The family name, descended from St.Perre de Semilly in Manche where they held the Castle of that name, was first referenced in the 11th century year. They branched north into Shropshire by the year 1273 where Urian de St.Petro succeeded to the estates. Sir Urian was knighted in 1306. Within the next 50 years the name Seyntpier emerged which later was often changed to Semper.
