Origin of the Name Harding

The ancient history of the name Harding was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Meaning 'the son of Harding', this is a baptismal name of great antiquity. Variants include Hardinge and Hardingham. This name is of Anglo-Norman descent spreading to Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in these countries. Examples of such are a Hugh Harding, Cambridge, and a Nicol Harding, Oxford, who were recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273. A Robert and Maurice Harding were recorded in the Rotuli Litterarum Clausarum in Turri Londinensi, in the thirteenth century. A Nicolas Hardinge was recorded in the 'Pipe Rolls', in the reign of Henry II and a Johannes Hardyng and a Thomas Hardyng were recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379. In Ireland this name has existed since the fifteenth century. It has since become well established in Tipperary and in the surrounding Counties.
The Harding 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 Harding descendants.
