Hallum Coat of Arms / Hallum Family Crest

The surname of HALLUM was a locational name 'of Hallum' i.e. Upper Hallam, a scattered township in the old parish of Sheffield. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land, and indicated where he actually lived. Early records of the name mention (Hallum) without surname who was listed as a tenant in the Domesday Book of 1086. Willelmus de Hallom who was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Elena de Hallum, 1379, ibid. Before the 1066 Conquest names were rare in England, the few examples found were mainly adopted by those of the clergy or one who had taken holy orders. In 1086 the conquering Duke William of Normandy commanded the Domesday Book. He wanted to know what he had and who held it, and the Book describes Old English society under its new management in minute detail. It was then that surnames began to be taken for the purposes of tax-assessment. The nobles and the upper classes were first to realise the prestige of a second name, but it was not until the 15th century that most people had acquired a second name. Later instances of the name include Thomas Hallom and Bridget Mitchell who were married in London in 1688. William Hallam and Jane Griffin were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in the year 1735. Thomas Hallums and Elizabeth Bingham were married at the same church in 1767. The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. 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.
