Whitehorn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Whitehorn family


The surname Whitehorn was first found in Suffolk where they held a family seat. 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 1275 when Martin Withorn held estates in that shire.
