Theobold History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Theobold is a name of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from the baptismal name Theobald,which was an ancient personal name. After the Norman Conquest, the Old English naming system gradually dissolved. Old English names became less common and were replaced by popular continental European names. The earliest surnames in England were found shortly after the Norman Conquest and are of Norman French rather than native English origins.

The surname Theobold was first found in the Domesday Book of 1086; several bearers of Theobold as a personal name were recorded as landowners after the Norman Conquest, particularly in Huntingdonshire, Cambridgeshire, and Suffolk. The first recorded instance of Theobold as a surname occurred in 1199, where Tomas Teobald was living in Gloucestershire.
