Yarker Coat of Arms / Yarker Family Crest

The surname of YARKER has the associated arms recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. These arms are blazoned with some differences on a tomb in the crypt of the Cathedral of St. Bavons in Ghent, and have been duly confirmed to the family in England in the year 1758. They are registered at Leyburn, County York. It was a baptismal name 'the son of James', from the Spanish Iago, which must have crossed over into Cornwall at some early period. The surname is fairly well established in that county. The name is also spelt JAGO, JAGOO and YARKER.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. Early records of the name mention JAGO filius Yfel of the County of Herefordshire in 1185.Johannes YARKER, who was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379, and Edward YARGER appears in the same document. James JAGOO of the County of Suffolk in 1524. Thomas JAGOE was registered at St. Columb Major in 1583. John JAGO and Margaret Griffin were married at Kensington Church, London in 1608. Thomas JAGO and Margaret Deane were married at St. George's Chapel, Mayfair, London in 1754. In the Middle Ages heraldry came into use as a practical matter. It originated in the devices used to distinguish the armoured warriors in tournament and war, and was also placed on seals as marks of identity. As far as records show, true heraldry began in the middle of the 12th century, and appeared almost simultaneously in several countries of Western Europe.
