Origin of the Name Felton

The Felton family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Felton is a locality name meaning 'of Felton', from parishes found in counties Hereford, Northumberland and Salop. This name is of English descent and is found in many ancient manuscripts in the above country. Examples of such are a Johannes de Felton, who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax', of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in the year 1379 and a William de Felton was Rector of Saint Mary Magdalen, Warham, County Norfolk, in the year 1349.
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.
Other examples of this name were found in the person of an Edward Felton and Elizabeth Crockett who were granted a marriage license, in London, in the year 1578. In Ireland this name was brought into Ulster Province by settlers from England who arrived during the seventeenth century.
The Felton 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 Felton descendants.
