Origin of the Name Heslop

The Heslop family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of Heslop include Hazlip, Heslip, Heyslip, Hyslop, Heslep, Hislop, Haslop, Heslop, Heyslop, Haslip and Huslop. This is a locational name and was taken from the old Norse 'Hesli' meaning 'Dweller in the hazel valley'. This sept originated in Munster .
A sept or clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. Irish septs and clans that are related often belong to even larger groups, sometimes called tribes.
They were found before the 18th century in Munster but most of them later migrated to Cavan and Down. The earliest reference to the name was Francis Haslopp who lived in Ballyharaghan Castle, in the parish of Ruan, County Clare, he being a Protestant deponent, in the year 1642. Thirty years later Francis Hasclopp of Killeedy, County Limerick appears as a referee in a bounds dispute near O'Brien's Bridge, County Clare. By the 19th century most of the name had migrated to Ulster and today that is where most are to be found.
The Heslop 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 Heslop descendants.
