The surname of ABLETSON was a baptismal name 'the son of Abel'. During the 11th to the 13th centuries, a need was felt for a second name in addition to the name that had been given at birth. This was recognized by the nobility, as it added prestige to their status. Early records of the name mention Abelota Loue, 1277 County Suffolk. William Abletson, was documented in the year 1335 in the County of Yorkshire. William Ablott was a Freeman of York, during the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). Edward Ablott of Yorkshire was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. On January 16th 1437, Robert Rhodes of the town of Newcastle upon Tyne, conveyed a house in Gateshead to William Abletson and Agnes his wife. Rene Rogier and Hannah Ablett were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in the year 1770.
At first the coat of arms was purely for practical use. With his armour covering his face and body, the only way for the knight's followers to recognise him, was the armour painted on his shield and embroidered on his surcoat, the garment which was draped over his body. As early as the year 1100, it was quite common for English people to give French names to their children, and the earliest instances are found among the upper classes, both the clergy and the patrician families. The Norman-French names used were generally the names most commonly used by the Normans, who had introduced them into England during the Norman Invasion of William the Conqueror in 1066.
The name is also spelt as Ablott and Ablett and Ablet.
