Mande History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , Scottish


The ancient Scottish name Mande was first used by the Strathclyde-Briton people of the Scottish/English Borderlands. The original bearer of the name lived in Aberdeen.


Early Origins of the Mande family


The surname Mande was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Early History of the Mande family


This web page shows only a small excerpt of our Mande research.
Another 136 words (10 lines of text) covering the years 1399, 1411, 1431, 1472, 1533, 1597, 1606, 1625, 1641, and 1790 are included under the topic Early Mande History in all our PDF Extended History products and printed products wherever possible.

Mande Spelling Variations


Spelling and translation were hardly exact sciences in Medieval Scotland. Sound, rather than any set of rules, was the basis for spellings, so one name was often spelled different ways even within a single document. Spelling variations are thus an extremely common occurrence in Medieval Scottish names. Mande has been spelled Mann, Mangus, Man and others.

Migration of the Mande family to the New World and Oceana


Such hard times forced many to leave their homeland in search of opportunity across the Atlantic. Many of these families settled along the east coast of North America in communities that would become the backbones of the young nations of the United States and Canada. The ancestors of many of these families have rediscovered their roots in the 20th century through the establishment of Clan societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. Among them:

The Mande Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Per ardua stabilis
Motto Translation: Firm in adversity.
