Origin of the Name Thomas

The origin of the name Thomas was found in the archives. Thomas is a baptismal name meaning 'the son of Thomas'. Variants include Thomason and Thomassen. This name is of English and Welsh descent spreading to Ireland, Scotland and England in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in these countries. Examples of such are a Roger Thomas, Cambridge, a Richard Thomas, Suffolk, and a Walter Thomas, Wiltshire, who were all recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273. An Adam Thomasson and a Johannes Thomasson were recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379. In Ireland this name is principally found in Dublin and Belfast having been introduced there from England centuries ago. The old names MacThomas and FitzThomas are found in early records but are rare now.
The Thomas 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 Thomas descendants.
