Wall Crest and Family Coat of Arms

Wall Genealogy & History

Wall, found throughout Northern Europe, is universally derived from Latin "vallum", meaning fortification/rampart, with subtleties that vary by country. For instance, in England and Germany it means a defensive wall, often stone-built, while in Sweden it means a flood barrier. Wall genealogy is complicated by its many variations, with over 40 spellings including Wahl, Wallenberg, Wallmann, Wal, Wale, Walls. In England, Wall family history dates back prior to the Norman Conquest, when the family were large land-owners with a feudal manor in Gloucestershire; in America, the first Wall to emigrate was to Maryland in 1661. A coat of arms features a green rock, symbolizing hope and safety.
