Treadgold Coat of Arms / Treadgold Family Crest

The surname of TREADGOLD was an occupational name 'the thread-gold' a name for an embroiderer. Early records of the name mention Tredegold (without surname) 1166 County Surrey. Reginald Tredegold, 1199 Wales. Edmund Thredgald, of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. John Thridgale was listed in the Wills at Chester in 1681. Benjamin Growcock and Frances Thridgold were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in the year 1765. The acquisition of surnames in Europe and England, during the last eight hundred years has been affected by many factors, including social class and social structure, naming practices in cultures and traditions. On the whole the richer and more powerful classes tended to acquire surnames earlier than the working class or the poor, while surnames were quicker to catch on in urban areas than in more sparsely populated rural areas. The bulk of surnames in England were formed in the 13th and 14th centuries. The process started earlier and continued in place names into the 19th century, but the norm is that in the 11th century people did not have surnames, whereas by the 15th century they did. During the Middle Ages, when people were unable to read or write, signs were needed for all visual identification. For several centuries city streets in Britain were filled with signs of all kinds, public houses, tradesmen and even private householders found them necessary. This was an age when there were no numbered houses, and an address was a descriptive phrase that made use of a convenient landmark. At this time, coats of arms came into being, for the practical reason that men went into battle heavily armed and were difficult to recognise. It became the custom for them to adorn their helmets with distinctive crests, and to paint their shields with animals and the like. Coats of arms accompanied the development of surnames, becoming hereditary in the same way. The name is also spelt as Thridgold and Tredgold.
