Spoor History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Dutch, English


Early Origins of the Spoor family


The surname Spoor was first found in Cornwall where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Northill. Cornwall was a land set apart, a land of mystique and quaint customs, more strongly related to Brittany and Wales than to England. It was not until the 10th century that they submitted to the Saxon rule of England. Since then, their influence has moved east into Devon, Somerset and Dorset.
