Elliott Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Elliott Family History


Elliott Family History


The family history of the ancient name Elliott was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. The name Elliott can be of English origin where it is derived from the old names Ellis and Elias. Families of the name were also of important Scottish origin, their Chief being located at Redheuch, with some other branches of the family being located at Larriston, Braidlie, Horsliehill, Arkleton and Stobs. Of the last named branch came Gilbert Eliot of Stobs, celebrated in Border History as 'Gibbie wi', the 'Gowden garters', who died leaving several sons. William, the eldest, was ancestor of the Baronets of Stobs, now regarded as the principal line of Scottish Elliots extant. In Ireland the name is mostly found in Counties Fermanagh, Leitrim and Cavan, having been introduced their by settlers from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. The Elliott family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Elliott descendants.
