Origin of the Name Churchill

The origin of the name Churchill was found in the archives. Churchill is a locality name meaning 'of Churchill', from parishes found in the diocese of Bath and Wells and in Counties Gloucestershire, Bristol, Oxfordshire and Worcestershire. This name is of English descent and is found in many ancient manuscripts in the above country. Examples of such are a Nicholas de Churchull, County Somerset, who was recorded in 'Kirby's Quest for Somerset', in which is contained the Exchequer Lay Subsidy for the Somerset Record Society, 1889. A Richard de Churchulle, County Somerset was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', in the year 1273.
Names were recorded in these ancient documents to make it easier for their overlords to collect taxes and to keep records of the population at any given time. When the overlords acquired land by either force or gifts from their rulers, they created charters of ownership for themselves and their vassals. It was by creating, maintaining and updating these reference books that they were able to maintain their authority and enforce laws.
In Ireland this name is of immigrant origin having been introduced into Ulster Province by settlers who arrived from England and Scotland , especially during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
The Churchill 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 Churchill descendants.
