Origin of the Name Trent

The origin of the name Trent was found in the archives. The name Trent is usually of English origin and is a locality name taken from various places named Trent including the important river which is recorded as early as the second century by Tacitus as 'Trisantona' and as 'Trente' in the Domesday Book of 1086. The name Trent is also well established in Scotland where ti is found in many ancient manuscripts. Examples of such are a William Trent who is recorded as being a Monk at Cupar Abbey in the year 1456. An Alexander Trent was recorded in Hardeismyllne in the year 1672. Names were recorded in these ancient documents to make it easier for the overlords to collect taxes and to keep records of the population at any given time. When the overlords acquired lands by either force or as gifts from their rulers, they created charters of ownership for themselves and their vassals. In Ireland this name is usually of immigrant origin having been introduced into Ulster Province by settlers from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century.
The Trent 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 Trent descendants.
