Stanupe Early Origins



The surname Stanupe was first found in Durham at Stanhope, a small market town in the wapentake of Darlington which "gave name to this knightly family of whom the first recorded ancestor is Walter de Stanhope, whose son Richard died at Stanhope in 1338 or 1339." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Shirley, Evelyn Philip, The Noble and Gentle Men of England; The Arms and Descents. Westminster: John Bower Nichols and Sons, 1866, Print.
The town actually dates back further to 1183 when it was first listed as Stanhopa. Literally the town's name means "stony valley" from the Old English words "stan" + "hop." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The parish of Shelford in Nottinghamshire was home to a tragic event in the family. "The manor-house [of Shelford] was garrisoned by Colonel Stanhope, son of the first earl of Chesterfield, for Charles I., and was taken by storm by Colonel Hutchinson, for the parliament, after a gallant resistance, during which Colonel Stanhope and most of his men were slain. The church is a handsome structure in the later English style; it is the burial-place of the noble family of Stanhope. An hospital called the Bede Houses, was founded and endowed in 1694, by Sir William Stanhope, for the reception and support of six of his decayed tenants. " [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Over in Horsley, Derbyshire another branch of the family was found in early days. "On the summit of a hill, about a mile from the church, are the ruins of the baronial castle of Horestan, or Horston, said to have been built in the twelfth century; in the time of Elizabeth, the edifice was in the possession of the Stanhope family, and, it is said, was occupied by them." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

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: A Deo et rege
Motto Translation: From God and the king.
