Page Family HistoryThis interesting surname relates back to the origins of chivalry and heraldry, and is from an occupational descriptive name, derived from the Middle English and Old French "page", a friend or servant, or a knighthood - many preferred to stay as a page. Job-descriptive surnames originally denoted the actual occupation of the namebearer, and later became hereditary. The name is not recorded in England before the Norman Conquest of 1066, and the surname was first recorded in the mid 13th Century (see below), while William le Page appeared as a witness in the Court of Fines for Essex, dated 1240. Recordings from Leicestershire Church Registers include: the marriage of Margery Page and William Webster on May 21st 1541, at Loughborough; the christening of Barbara, daughter of Thoma Page, on October 29th 1574, at South Kilworth; and the marriage of Dunstone Page and Margery Norton on July 25th 1584, at Thurcaston-cum-Cropston...
