Origin of the Name Garrett

The ancient history of the name Garrett was found in the archives. Meaning 'the son of Gerard', Garrett is a baptismal name and has a number of variants including Garrard, Gerard, Garratt, Garrad, Garritt, Garrod, Garrood and Garrud. This name is of Anglo-Norman descent spreading to Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in the above countries. Examples of such are a Johannes Gerard, a Thomas Gerard, and a Gyrerd Tolus, who were recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379. A Thomas Garard was registered in the University of Oxford in the year 1511. In Ireland Garrett is often of immigrant origin, especially in Ulster Province. Gerard, Gerald and Garrett are also synonyms of the names Fitzgarrett and Fitzgerald and are said to be of the same family.
The Garrett 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 Garrett descendants.
