Tawton Early Origins



The surname Tawton was first found in Lancashire where the family were first found in the manor of Aigburth. Tarleton is a parish, in the union of Ormskirk, hundred of Leyland in Lancashire. "This place either gave its name to, or received its name from, an ancient family who had possessions here in the reign of Richard II." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
While there is no doubt of the origin of the name in this area, one of the first record of the name was Maien de Torleton who was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Gloucestershire in 1204. More than one hundred years later, Gilbert de Tarleton was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Lancashire in 1332. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Tawton, or a variant listed above: Elizabeth Tarleton and her husband settled in Barbados in 1679; B. Tarleton arrived in San Francisco in 1852; Henry Tarlton settled in New England in 1671..

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: Post nubila phoebus
Motto Translation: After clouds, sunshine.
