Origin of the Name Page

The Page family history was found in the archives.
Over the centuries Surnames developed a wide number of variants. Different spellings of the same name can be traced back to an original root. Additionally when a bearer of a name emigrated it was not uncommon that their original name would be incorrectly transcribed in the record books at their new location. Surnames were also often altered over the years based on how they sounded phonetically and depending on the prevailing political conditions it may have been advantageous to change a name from one language to another.
Variants of the name Page
include Paige, Payge, Pagett and Paget. This is an occupational name describing a person who was employed as a young servant or Gentleman's assistant, a personal attendant in a Noble's house. This name is usually 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 these countries. A Lambert Page of County Yorkshire was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273. A John le Page was recorded in the 'Writs of Parliament' in the year 1300. In Scotland a John Page was recorded as being one of the Scots prisoners taken in Dunbar Castle in the year 1296. In Ireland this name is found in Ulster Province and the Galway area where it has been Gaelicized as 'Mac Giolla'. The many variants of Page are also to be found in County Dublin and surrounding areas.
The Page 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 Page descendants.
