Teys Coat of Arms / Teys Family Crest

This surname TYES is fairly obscure in its origin, although it is thought to have been derived from the Old French 'Tieis' and was probably brought into England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066 with William the Conqueror. Early records of the name mention Everard le Tieis, 1170, County Hertfordshire. Fulbrich Tyes was documented in Clerkenwell, London in the year 1263. Walerand le Tyeis, was recorded in 1273 in the County of Somerset. Franco le Tyeys, County Yorkshire, ibid. 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. This could also have been a locational name 'the dweller at the Tye' an extensive common pasture. There is also a small place Telscombe Tye a few miles from Brighton. Other records of the name mention Hugh de la Tye, 1273 County Sussex. Peter atte-Tye was documented in County Norfolk, during the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). Thomas Tye and Marie Collins were married at St. Michael, Cornhill, London in 1608. James Tye and Sarah Lord were married at St. Georges, Hanover Square, London in 1784. Richard Tyas and Elizabeth White were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in the year 1770. Jonathan Thompson and Mary Tyers were married at the same church in the year 1783. The name has many variant spellings which include Tye and Tyars. 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.
