Over the centuries the name Li Destri may have had many changes and the present form, according to our studies, appears to be different from the original. It is important to realize that the name may have gone through dialect variations, contractions, shortened forms of the original one, lenitions, errors due to incorrect transcriptions and voluntary changes. Therefore, we believe that the surname Li Destri came originally from DEXTER, on which we are able to provide the following historical and heraldic information taken from bibliographic sources of Araldicus. This Last Name DEXTER was of the occupational group of last names ‘a dyer of cloth’. The name was primarily extrapolated from the Middle English word DEAG meaning ‘dye’. Occupational last names refer directly to the particular trade or occupation followed by the first bearer of the name. These occupations can be divided into classes such as agricultural, manufacturing, retailing and so on. In the Middle Ages, at least among the Christian population, people did not pursue uniqueized occupations exclusively to the extent that we do today. Smiths, millers and wrights were indeed uniqueists, but even they would commonly have their own smallholdings for growing crops and keeping a few animals. Others were simply designated as the servant of some person of a higher social status, as a maid or parson. This name is a Suffolk form of DYSTER, and also noted in Leicester and Warwickshire. The name is also spelt DEX, DECKSTER and DYKSTER. John Ralph le Dextere appears in County Leicestershire in the year 1262, and seems to be the first of the name on record. Roger Simon le Dykestre was documented in 1305 in County Suffolk, and William Dexter is mentioned in 1278 in Warwickshire. Most of the European last names were formed in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The process had started somewhat earlier and had continued in some places into the 19th century, but the norm is that in the tenth and eleventh centuries people did not have last names, whereas by the fifteenth century most of the population had acquired a second name. Later instances of the name include Edward Dexter and Elizabeth Benbo who were married at St. Michael, Cornhill, London in the year 1604, and George Dexter and Ann Abell were wed in London in 1609. The name was taken to Ireland by early settlers where it is rendered as Dwyer. The associated coat of arms is recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. Translation of arms: Argent (white) denotes Peace and Sincerity. Azure (blue) meant Loyalty and Truth. The chevron was the emblem of protection and were frequently granted in the arms to one who had achieved some noble enterprise…. Altri cognomi trovati: Dexter, Doster, …
