Therode Early Origins



The surname Therode was first found in Lincolnshire, where they claim descent from Theroldus de Buckenhuld, Sheriff of Lincolnshire in 1052 whose descendant Sir Richards Thorold of Selby was living during the reign of Edward III. He married Joan, daughter and heiress of Robert de Haugh, of Marston. And it is from this marriage a son was born, William Thorold, Lord of Marston. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Looking back further in Normandy, the family is a branch of the DeVers, from Ver near Bayeux where Alberic de Ver witnessed a Breton charter in 1058. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

"It comes to us from Normandy, where Turold was one of the preceptors of William the Conqueror, and his Grand-Constable at the time on the Conquest. The name TUROLD occurs upon the Bayeux Tapestry, designating one of the ambassadors dispatched by the Norman Duke to Guy, Earl of Ponthieu. " [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Therode Spelling Variations

Therode Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Thorold, Thorald, Thorrold, Thorrald, Therould and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlanti c. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Therode or a variant listed above: Jacob and Sarah Therould settled in New York in 1686 with two children.

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: Cervus non servus
Motto Translation: A stag not enslaved.
