The Trollope family has descended through the lines of the ancient Normans that came to England following their Conquest of England in 1066. The Trollope name reveals that an early member was a person who derived their name from the Old Norse word "troll" meaning an "imp" or "super natural being" and the Old English word "hop" which means "enclosed valley."

Trollope Early Origins



The surname Trollope was first found in Northumberland where the name was originally spelt Troughburn which was derived from the epression "troll-valley".

Trollope Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Trollope family name include Trollop, Trollope and others.

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: Audio sed taceo
Motto Translation: I hear, but say nothing.
