Werk History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Werk family


The surname Werk was first found in Essex 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 year 1260 when Richard Work held estates.
