Origin of the Name Heath

The origin of the name Heath was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Meaning 'at the heath', this is a locational name'. The same name also denoted heather, the characteristic plant that inhabited the heaths. Variants include Heather and Heathman. 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 de la Hethe, Wiltshire, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273 and a Robert del Heth, was recorded in the 'Poll Tax', of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in the year 1379. A John Heather and Elizabeth Armet, were married in Saint Mary, Aldermary, in the year 1633, and a William Heather and Hannah Dine, were married in Saint Georges, London, in the year 1788. In Ireland the name is found in small numbers having been introduced there centuries ago.
The Heath 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 Heath descendants.
