Origin of the Name Burrows

The origin of the name Burrows was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Meaning 'at the borough', Burrows is a locational name for someone who lived at or by a hill or tumulus. Variants include Burrough, Burroughes, Burroughs, Burrow, Burrowes and Burris. 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 the above islands. Examples of such are a John atte Boroghe, County Somerset, who was recorded in 'Kirby's Quest', in the year 1889, and a William Burroughs and Elizabeth Knight, who were married in Saint Georges Chapel Mayfair, in the year 1742.
In Ireland this name and its variants were introduced into Ulster Province by settlers who arrived from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. It was the 'Plantations of Ireland' in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries that marked the end of Gaelic supremacy in Ireland. While the influx of settlers in the wake of the earlier Anglo-Norman invasion of the twelfth century resulted in a full integration into Irish society of the new arrivals, the same never occurred with the Ulster Planters who maintained their own distinct identity.
Brugha and Burgess are occasional variants.
The Burrows 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 Burrows descendants.
