Wallrapp Early Origins



The surname Wallrapp 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]

Wallrapp Spelling Variations



Multitudes of spelling variations are a hallmark of Anglo Norman names. Most of these names evolved in the 11th and 12th century, in the time after the Normans introduced their own Norman French language into a country where Old and Middle English had no spelling rules and the languages of the court were French and Latin. To make matters worse, medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, so names frequently appeared differently in the various documents in which they were recorded. The name was spelled Wallhope, Wallop, Walopp, Walop, Wallopp, Wallope, Wellhope, Welhopp and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Because of this political and religious unrest within English society, many people decided to immigrate to the colonies. Families left for Ireland, North America, and Australia in enormous numbers, travelling at high cost in extremely inhospitable conditions. The New World in particular was a desirable destination, but the long voyage caused many to arrive sick and starving. Those who made it, though, were welcomed by opportunities far greater than they had known at home in England. Many of these families went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Wallrapp 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.
