La Perle Coat of Arms / La Perle Family Crest

Surnames as we know them today were first assumed in Europe from the 11th to the 15th Century. The employment in the use of a second name was a custom that was first introduced from the Normans. They themselves had not long before adopted them. It became, in course of time, a mark of gentler blood, and it was deemed a disgrace for gentlemen to have but one single name, as the meaner sort had. At first the coat of arms was a practical matter which served a function on the battlefield and in tournaments. With his helmet covering his face, and armour encasing the knight from head to foot, the only means of identification for his followers, was the insignia painted on his shield and embroidered on his surcoat, the flowing and draped garment worn over the armour. This name LA PERLE is of the occupational group of surnames 'a dealer and seller of pearls' and was rendered in medieval documents in the Latin form PERLA. The name has numerous variant spellings which include PERL, PERLE, PERELMAN, PERLA and LE PEARL, to name but a few. The name was brought into England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. Early records of the name mention Henry Reginald Perle, 1259, County Oxford. Edward Perle was documented in the year of 1316 in the County of Lancashire. Thomas Perle of County Somerset, was recorded during the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). Walter Pearle of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Mathew Pearl and Sarah Ellen Morris were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in the year 1805. At first the coat of arms was a practical matter which served a function on the battlefield and in tournaments.
