Culham Family Crest / Culham Coat of Arms

The surname of CULHAM was a locational name 'of Culham', a parish in County Oxfordshire, this is a purely English name. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land, and indicated where he actually lived. Early records of the name mention Ranulf de Colham of the County of Shropshire in 1273. Thomas Culham of Yorkshire was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. William Culhame was registered at Oxford University in 1570. John Cullum and Jane Price were married in London in 1595. Beccaman Turner and Abygdal Cullum were married at St. James's, Clerkenwell, London in 1669. Philip Culham and Mary Bailey were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in 1779. The origin of badges and emblems, are traced to the earliest times, although, Heraldry, in fact, cannot be traced later than the 12th century, or at furthest the 11th century. At first armorial bearings were probably like surnames and assumed by each warrior at his free will and pleasure, his object being to distinguish himself from others. It has long been a matter of doubt when bearing Coats of Arms first became hereditary. It is known that in the reign of Henry V (1413-1422), a proclamation was issued, prohibiting the use of heraldic ensigns to all who could not show an original and valid right, except those 'who had borne arms at Agincourt'. The College of Arms (founded in 1483) is the Royal corporation of heralds who record proved pedigrees and grant armorial bearings. Early records of the name mention Ranulf de Colham of the County of Shropshire in 1273. Thomas Culham of Yorkshire was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. William Culhame was registered at Oxford University in 1570. John Cullum and Jane Price were married in London in 1595. Beccaman Turner and Abygdal Cullum were married at St. James's, Clerkenwell, London in 1669. Philip Culham and Mary Bailey were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in 1779.
