Westropp History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Westropp family


The surname Westropp was first found in Yorkshire where "the family claim descent from John Westropp, son of Edward Westropp, temp. King John. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Edward's son John Westropp held a manor at Brompton near Northallerton in that shire. The manor was in Brompton, Pickering-lyth. Brompton is "said to have been the residence of the kings of Northumberland; and on an eminence called Castle Hill, are the foundations of an ancient castle, about half a mile from which is Gallows' Hill, the place of execution for criminals within the barony. " [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

The Westropp 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: Post funera virtus
Motto Translation: Virtue survives death.
