Walkesare History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Walkesare family


The surname Walkesare was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when held lands.

Walkesare Spelling Variations


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Walkesare family name include Walkfare, Walkesare, Walksare, Walkshop, Walkshar, Walkshore, Walkey and many more.

Migration of the Walkesare family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Walkesare surname or a spelling variation of the name include: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Immigrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, Virginia, the Carolinas, and the islands. Richard Walkey was one of the earliest settlers, going to Connecticut in 1644. Andrew Walkey went to New England in 1720.
