Ellertson Coat of Arms / Ellertson Family Crest

This surname of ELLERTSON was of the baptismal group of surnames and was derived from the Old English word 'aeoelheard'. The name was originally brought into England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. In 1066 Duke William of Normandy conquered England. He was crowned King, and most of the lands of the English nobility were soon granted to his followers. Domesday Book was compiled 20 years later. The Saxon Chronicle records that in 1085 'at Gloucester at midwinter, the King had deep speech with his counsellors, and sent men all over England to each shire to find out, what or how much each landowner held in land and livestock, and what it was worth. The returns were brought to him'. William was thorough. One of his Counsellors reports that he also sent a second set of Commissioners 'to shires they did not know and where they were themselves unknown, to check their predecessors' survey, and report culprits to the King'. The information was collected at Winchester, corrected, abridged, and copied by one single writer into a single volume. Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex were copied, by several writers into a second volume. The whole undertaking was completed at speed, in less than 12 months. The name is also spelt ADLARD, ALLART, ELLARD, ELLET, HALLARD and AHLERS. Early records of the name mention Adelardus (without surname) listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. Adam Adelard, 1273 County Cambridge. John Adelard was documented in 1327 in County Yorkshire, and Richard William Adlard was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. ADELARD (without surname) was a 12th century philosopher. He studied at Tours, and travelled widely in Italy and the near east, and is attested at Bath in 1130. His philosophical and scientific writings include many important translations from the Arabic into Latin. Adelard Baat was recorded as the chaplain of Magdalen, Oxford University in the year 1505. William Tollitt married Elizabeth Adlard at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in the year 1794. A notable member of this name was Charles ELLET, American civil engineer, born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Called the 'Brunel of America' he was educated in France, built the first wire suspension bridges in America, including one over the Schuylkill River at Fairmount (l842).
