This very interesting English and French surname recorded in the spellings of Trump, Trumper, and the more correct Trumpeter, is a pre-medieval occupational surname. It does describe one who played the horn or trumpet, and probably had a military significance, a trumpeter being a status or rank along with drummer. The derivation is from the old French "trompeor or "trumpeur" words proabaly introduced into Britain after the 1088 Norman Invasion. The first recordings are from the mid 13th Century, the very begining of hereditary surnames. Early examples of the name recording taken from authentic rolls and charters of seven hundred years ago include William Trompour in the register known as "The Calendar of Letter Books of London" in 1320, and John le Trumpour in the "Subsidy Rolls" of the county of Yorkshire in the year 1327. Later recordings taken from church registers of the period include, Margaret, the daughter of Richard Trumper, who was christened on April 4th 1624 at St. Nicholas church, Cole Abbey, London, whilst Mary Trumpeter married Edward Weekes at St Dunstans in the East, Stepney, on February 5th 1630. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Adam Trumpur, which was dated 1253, in the rolls known as "The catalogue of Ancient Deeds", for the county of Essex, during the reign of King Henry 111, "The Frenchman", 1216 - 1272. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
