Hampton Genealogy & History

Hampton is a locational English name derived from Old English "ham", meaning homestead, and "tun", meaning enclosure. There were many places called Hampton or Hantune around Staffordshire, where a Hampton family held a family seat (feudal home), including Exeter, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Oxfordshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire, and Worcestershire. The widespread Hampton family history in England, Ireland, and Scotland in medieval times is reflected in the fifteen coats of arms granted to various Hampton branches, many containing the five-leafed cinquefoil, symbolic of the five senses of the human body and for knights' mastery over their body. American Hampton genealogy began in Virginia in 1621.
