Hemminger Coat of Arms / Hemminger Family Crest

The surname of HEMMINGER was a baptismal name 'the son of Hemming' an ancient although now forgotten personal name. The name was originally derived from the Old Norman personal name HEMMINGR, and was brought into England in the wake of the Norman Invasion of 1066. Early records of the name mention Henry Hemmeng who was recorded in the year 1273 in County Suffolk. Robertus Hemmyng of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Buried, Jane, daughter of Thomas Hemmynges at St. Dionis Backchurch, London in the year 1574. Thomas Prestone married Elizabeth Hemmyng at St. Dionis, Backchurch, London in 1579. The name is also spelt Hemmings. 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. Most of the European surnames were formed in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The process had started somewhat earlier and had continued in some places into the 19th century, but the norm is that in the tenth and eleventh centuries people did not have surnames, whereas by the fifteenth century most of the population had acquired a second name.
