Sloane History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Sloane was first used by the people of an ancient Scottish tribe called the Strathclyde Britons. It is derived from the Gaelic personal name Sluaghadhán. Sloane is a patronymic surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. The surname Sloane is derived from the given name Sluaghadhán, which derived from the Gaelic word, sluaghadh, and meant, raid.


Early Origins of the Sloane family


The surname Sloane was first found in Kirkcudbrightshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Chille Chuithbheirt), part of the present day Council Area of Dumfries and Galloway, former county in Southwestern Scotland, where they held a family seat. Johnn Slowane of Garoche was a juror on assize at Kirkcudbright in 1508.

Other early records include a William Slowane, who held a tenement near Dalkeith, in Midlothian in 1504.

The name has also existed in Ireland since at least the 15th Century, when bearers of Sloane emigrated to eastern Ulster, in Armagh and Down. However, there is some debate that the name also has native Irish roots, and had existed in Ireland prior to this emigration.

Migration of the Sloane family to the New World and Oceana


For Scottish immigrants, the great expense of travel to North America did not seem such a problem in those unstable times. Acres of land awaited them and many got the chance to fight for their freedom in the American War of Independence.
