Weaving Coat of Arms / Weaving Family Crest

The Dutch surname of WEAVING was an occupational name 'the weaver' one who wove cloth. Occupational surnames originally denoted the actual occupation followed by the individual. At what period they became hereditary is a difficult problem. Many of the occupation names were descriptive and could be varied. In the Middle Ages, at least among the Christian population, people did not usually pursue specialized occupations exclusively to the extent that we do today, and they would, in fact, turn their hand to any form of work that needed to be done, particularly in a large house or mansion, or on farms and smallholdings. In early documents, surnames often refer to the actual holder of an office, whether the church or state. It was a familiar entry in medieval documents. The name is also spelt WEVERINGH, WEEVER, WEAVE and WEAVER. The name dates from the 8th and 9th centuries, and was brought into England by early settlers from Holland. Early records of the name in England mention John le Wever, who was recorded in 1296 in County Sussex. Edward Weaver of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. George Wever, of County Somerset, registered at Oxford University in 1522. George Wever (gent) was listed in the Wills at Chester in 1585. Henrie Planncon (a Dutchman) and Margaret Weaver were married at St. Peter, Cornhill, London in the year 1610. Dutchmen who have surnames from towns, cities or districts, are mostly distinguished by the prefix VAN. In the United States the use of capital and initial letters and spaces is optional with the particular family. The Dutch language is most closely related to Low German, and its surnames have been influenced both by German and French naming practices. The preposition 'van' is found especially with habitation names, and the 'de' mainly with nicknames. Compared to other countries, Dutch heraldry is notably simpler, some of the shields bearing only a single charge. Generally speaking one helmet, one shield and one crest has been used, quartering is uncommon and mottoes are rare.
