An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The vast movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066 brought the Warrpole family name to the British Isles. They lived in Norfolk, at Walpole. Looking back even further, we found the name was originally derived from the Old English words welle, meaning well, and pol, meaning pool, and refers to a pool formed by a well.

Warrpole Early Origins



The surname Warrpole was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat at the time of the Conquest at Freethorpe and Mershland. John of Walpole was nephew of Waleran, the great Essex Baron who was Count of Meulan in Normandy. Joceline de Walpole was living in the reign of Stephen and Reginald de Walpole, in the time of Henry I seems to have been the lineal ancestor of the house. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Warrpole Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Walpole, Walpolle, Wallpole and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Warrpole or a variant listed above: Thomas Walpole arrived in Philadelphia in 1802.

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: Fari quae sentiat
Motto Translation: To speak what he feels.
