Weldy Coat of Arms / Weldy Family Crest

The associated coat of arms is recorded in Sir Bernard Burke's General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. The surname of WELDY was a locational name 'at the weald' from residence near a wood or waste land. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land. In the middle ages it was customary for a man to be named after the village where he held his land: this name identified his whole family and followed him wherever he moved. It could have been his place of birth, or the name of his land-holding. Local surnames, by far the largest group, derived from a place name where the man held land or from the place from which he had come, or where he actually lived. These local surnames were originally preceded by a preposition such as "de", "atte", "by" or "in". The names may derive from a manor held, from working in a religious dwelling or from literally living by a wood or marsh or by a stream. The name is also spelt WELD, WELDE, WEILDY and WELDIE. The earliest of the name on record appears to be Walter de la Wolde who was documented during the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). Willelmus del Weld of Yorkshire was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. William Kerry married Rose Weld at St. Mary Aldermary, London in 1656. In many parts of central and western Europe, hereditary surnames began to become fixed at around the 12th century, and have developed and changed slowly over the years. As society became more complex, and such matters as the management of tenure, and in particular the collection of taxes were delegated to special functionaries, it became imperative to distinguish a more complex system of nomenclature to differentiate one individual from another. A family of the name WELD trace their descent from William de Welde who was the sheriff of London in 1352.
