Origin of the Name Mathews

The ancient history of the name Mathews was found in the archives. Mathews is a baptismal name meaning 'the son of Mathew' or 'Gift of Yahweh', the Hebrew personal name, 'Mattithyah'. Variants of Mathews include Matthew, Mathewson, Matthewson, Mathewes and Mathias. 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 Robert Matheu who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax of the West Riding of Yorkshire' in the year 1379. Robert Mathewson was married in London in 1559. In Scotland Patrick Mathew was Late Town officer in Edinburgh, in the year 1721. A Robert Mathow, was Burgess Freeman of Glasgow, in the year 1661. In Ireland the name is to be found in Ulster having been introduced there from England centuries ago.
The Mathews 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 Mathews descendants.
