Ware Crest and Family Coat of Arms

Ware Genealogy & History

Ware is an English name derived from Old English "weir", meaning river-dam. It described either someone who lived near or worked at a dam or someone from a town Ware named after its dam. A less likely derivation from Old English "waer", meaning wary, would describe a cautious person. English Ware family history dates from the feudal era when they had a family seat in Devonshire, and in America from 1623 in Virginia. The dragons and lions on the Ware crest and coat of arms symbolize valiant and fierce courage. A noted name-bearer in Ware genealogy is Lancelot Ware, co-founder of the high-IQ society Mensa.
