Boydell Coat of Arms / Boydell Family Crest

The surname of BOYDELL was a locational name 'the dweller by the river' from residence nearby. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land, and indicated where he actually lived. Early records of the name mention Caterina Boydel, 1273, County Norfolk. Edward Boydel was documented in 1273 in County Yorkshire, and Adam Boydel of Lacnashire was recorded during the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). A later instance of the name mentions James Boydell and Catherine Rutland who were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in the year 1787. Habitation names are derived from names denoting towns, villages, farmsteads or other named places, which include rivers, houses with signs on them, regions, or whole counties. The original bearer of the name who stayed in his area might be known by the name of his farm, or the locality in the parish; someone who moved to another town might be known by the name of his village; while someone who moved to another county could aquire the name of that county or the region from which he originated. Surnames before the Norman Conquest of 1066 were rare in England having been brought by the Normans when William the Conqueror invaded the shores. The practice spread to Scotland and Ireland by the 12th century, and in Wales they appeared as late as the 16th century. Most surnames can be traced to one of four sources, locational, from the occupation of the original bearer, nicknames or simply font names based on the first name of the parent being given as the second name to their child. At first the coat of arms was a practical matter which served a function on the battlefield and in tournaments. With his helmet covering his face and armour encasing the knight from head to foot, the only means of identification for his followers, was the insignia painted on his shield and embroidered on his surcoat, the draped and flowing garment worn over the armour. The associated coat of arms is recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. Registered in the County of Chester.
