Origin of the Name Atkins



The Atkins family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Meaning 'the son of Adam', Atkins is a baptismal name of great antiquity taken from the Bible. Variants include Adkin, Adkins, Adkinson, Atkin, Atkinson, Atkyns, Adkisson, Aiken, Aitken, Aitkin and Aitkins. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Willemus Adkynson and a Edmund Adkynson, who were recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire, England , in the year 1379. A Geoffrey Adekyn was recorded in the 'History of Norfolk' in the reign of Richard II. A James Aitkine in Darnchester, Scotland , took an oath in the year 1685. A William Deevy and Elizabeth Adkins were married in Saint Dionis Backchurch, London, in the year 1680. In Ireland families of the name became established during the seventeenth century, especially in County Cork where the family, who had come from Somerset, were prominent in the commercial life of the city.
The Atkins coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Atkins descendants.
