An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The surname Wardrup is thought to have emerged in the borderland region between Northern England and Scotland. The name is derived from the Old Norman "warderobe," a name given to an official of the wardrobe, and was most likely first borne by someone who held this distinguished position.

Wardrup Early Origins



The surname Wardrup was first found in Scotland, where Robert de Warderob witnessed a charter by Countess Margaret of Buchan in favor of the Abbey of Arbroath in 1210. The Wardrup family held estates in Dumbartonshire from the end of the 13th century, and played a valiant part in the medieval history of this region.

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: Superna sequor
Motto Translation: I follow heavenly things.
