Origin of the Name Tudhope

The ancient history of the name Tudhope was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Tudhope is a name of local origin, from Tudhope near Jedburgh, Roxburghshire. This name is of Scottish descent and is found in many ancient manuscripts in the above country. Examples of such are Alexander Tudhope, who appears in record as a resident of Crocefuird in 1622 and James Tudhope who was summoned before the Privy Council in 1627. 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. Other examples of this name were found in the person of James Tudhope who appears in record as burgess of Jedburgh in 1703. In Ireland this name is found in small numbers in Ulster Province.
The Tudhope 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 Tudhope descendants.
