Hoppel Coat of Arms / Hoppel Family Crest

The surname of HOPPEL was a baptismal name 'the son of Robert'. This name was originally composed of the elements HROD (renown) and BERHT (bright and famous). The name is also spelt HOBBEL, HOPEL, HOPP, HOBBS and HOBB. The name was found in England occasionally before the Norman Conquest of 1066, but in the main it was introduced into England by the Normans and quickly became popular among all classes of society. Most of the European surnames in countries such as England, Scotland and France 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. Early records of the name mention Hobbe Litel of the County of Sussex in 1176 and Osbert Ralph Hobbe of Wales in 1204. Willilmus Hobson was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Hob filius Ralph of the County of Yorkshire was documented in 1400. John Hobs and Avis Gore were married at St. Mary Aldermary, London in 1569. Since the dawn of civilisation the need to communicate has been a prime drive of all higher mankind. The more organised the social structure became, the more urgent the need to name places, objects and situations essential to the survival and existence of the social unit. From this common stem arose the requirements to identify families, tribes and individual members evolving into a pattern in evidence today. In the formation of this history, common usage of customs, trades, locations, patronymic and generic terms were often adopted as surnames. The demands of bureaucracy formally introduced by feudal lords in the 11th century, to define the boundaries and families within their fiefdoms, crystallized the need for personal identification and accountability, and surnames became in general use from this time onwards. A notable member of the name was Sir Jack HOBBS (1882-1963) the English cricketer. He was one of the greatest batsmen of his time and the first professional cricketer to be knighted. It was not only his play, but his personality that endeared HOBBS to the crowd.
