Walhope Early Origins



The surname Walhope was first found in Hampshire where "the true and original name of this family is Barton - Peter Barton, lord of West Barton, having married Alice, only daughter and heiress of Sir Robert de Wallop, who died in the eleventh year of Edward I." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Shirley, Evelyn Philip, The Noble and Gentle Men of England; The Arms and Descents. Westminster: John Bower Nichols and Sons, 1866, Print.
There can be no doubt as to the authenticity of this quote, but one must question Sir Robert de Wallop's heritage, not Peter Barton. For this, we must look back further where the name "Matthew de Wallop, which was the title of one of it's early members, favours the opinion, that the Wallops were settled at Wallop as Saxon manorial lords anterior to the Conquest of England, and that the family name is derived from that places." In fact, "four brothers are mentioned in [the] Domesday [Book] as possessing Wallop, in Hampshire." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Walhope Spelling Variations

Walhope 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 Wallhope, Wallop, Walopp, Walop, Wallopp, Wallope, Wellhope, Welhopp and many more.

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 Walhope or a variant listed above: James Wallop who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1749.

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: En suivant la verite
Motto Translation: By following the truth.
