Early Origins of the Topghan family


The surname Topghan was first found in the North Riding of Yorkshire at Agelthorpe of Agglethorpe, a township, in the parish of Coverham, union of Leyburn, wapentake of Hang-West. "The monks of Coverham had land here, valued at 1. 6. 8. per annum; and the village, which is situated on the northern acclivity of the romantic Coverdale, is remarkable for its ancient Hall, now a farmhouse, which once belonged to the Topham family."

The Topghan Motto

The Topghan 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: Ut vivas vigila
Motto Translation: Watch that you may live.
