Mapplethorpe Coat of Arms / Mapplethorpe Family Crest

This surname of MAPPLETHORPE was a locational name of Mablethorpe in County Lincolnshire. Habitation names are derived from names denoting towns, villages, farmsteads or other named places, which include rivers, houses with signs on them, regions, or whole counties. The original bearer of the name who stayed in his area might be known by the name of his farm, or the locality in the parish; someone who moved to another town might be known by the name of his village; while someone who moved to another county could acquire the name of that county or the region from which he originated. The name was originally derived from the Old French MALBERT, and was brought into England in the wake of the Norman Invasion. Many of the early names recorded in medieval documents denote noble families but many also indicate migration from the continent during, and in the wake of, the Norman invasion of 1066. There was a constant stream of merchants, workmen and others arriving in England during this time. In 1086 the Record of Great Inquisition of lands of England, their extent, value, ownership and liabilities was made by order of William The Conquerer. It is known as the Domesday Book. MALBERTORP (without surname) was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1066, and appears to be the first of the name on record. Malbretorp was documented in the year 1200, and Gilbert de Maupertorp was recorded in 1219 in County Yorkshire. The name has variant spellings which include Mabblethorpe, Mabelthorp, Mapplethorp and Maplethorpe. It was not until the 10th century that modern hereditary surnames first developed, and the use of fixed names spread, first to France, and then England, then to Germany and all of Europe. In these parts of Europe, the individual man was becoming more important, commerce was increasing and the exact identification of each man was becoming a necessity. Even today however, the Church does not recognise surnames. Baptisms and marriages are performed through use of the Christian name alone. Thus hereditary names as we know them today developed gradually during the 11th to the 15th century in the various European countries. The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. (Mablethorpe).
