Warrtan Early Origins



The surname Warrtan was first found in towns and civil parishes in Westmorland, Cheshire or Lincolnshire named Wharton. The oldest local was in Cheshire where the place name was listed as Wanetune [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
in the Domesday Book of 1086. Years later this village was to be known as Waverton in 1216. Literally the village probably meant "farmstead by a swaying tree," from the Old English "waefree" + "tun." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
But we must look to Westmorland (now known as Cumbria) for Wharton, a civil parish near Kirkby Stephen in the Eden District for the oldest records of the surname. "The Hall, once a large quadrangular building with a tower at each angle, was the princely residence of Philip, the celebrated Duke of Wharton, and his ancestors, but is now occupied as a farmhouse. The estates and manorial rights of the Whartons are now possessed by the Earl of Lonsdale." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
During the Dissolution of the Monasteries (1536-1541), the manor of Langdale in Westmorland was sold to the Wharton family.

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: Generosus nascitur non fit
Motto Translation: The gentleman is born not made.
