Tolar is a name that was formed by the Anglo-Saxon society of old Britain. The name was thought to have been used for someone who once worked as a person charged with the duty of collecting taxes. The surname Tolar is derived from the Old English word tollere, which means tax-gatherer.

Tolar Early Origins



The surname Tolar was first found in Cornwall and West Dorset where the name was derived from the River Toller (now named River Hooke.) Locals Toller Whelme, Toller Fratrum, and Toller Porcorum can still be found in this county today.

Tolar Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Tolar include Toler, Tolar, Toller, Tollers, Tolers, Towler and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Tolar were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Marie Toller who settled in New England in 1635; Daniel Toller settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1802; Daniel Towler settled in Philadelphia in 1854.

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: Regi et patrić fidelis
Motto Translation: Faithful to king and law.
