Whitmarsh History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Whitmarsh family


The surname Whitmarsh was first found in Wiltshire 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 13th century when they held lands.
