At Walwick Grange and High Warden, county Northumberland, a branch of this Errington family traces its descent from Gerard Errington, of Woolwick Grange, of the time of Henry VIII. The spelling Harrington is most favored in England as well as America. Many of them bore coats-of-arms. The Harringtons of Essex county : Sable a fret or ; the Harringtons at Harrington-Sibble, county Essex : Sable a fret argent charged with nine fleurs-de-lis gules ; and families bearing arms have lived or are living at Bangworth, county Leicester ; Hanwell, county Middlesex ; Stepney, county Middlesex; Bishton, county Salop; Kelston, county Somerset, and others.
