Origin of the Name Wall

The ancient history of the name Wall was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Wall is a name of locality origin describing a person who lived beside the walls of a defended city. Variants include Walle, Walls, Waller and Wallman. This name is of Celtic origin and is found throughout England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in these countries. Examples of such are a Godfrey atte Wall of County Essex who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273. A John Walls is recorded as having been examined in Tinwald, Scotland, in the year 1685. In Ireland the Walls arrived with the Anglo-Norman invasion in the twelfth century, the earliest form of the name being 'de Valle'. They formed a Gaelic sept called 'de Bhail', naming Walter Wale as Chief with their original territory being in County Galway. From there they spread to Limerick and Waterford and to the nearby Counties of Leinster Province. A separate branch of these families anglicized their name as Faltagh.
The Wall 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 Wall descendants.
