The name Allyncrown was first used by the ancient Strathclyde-Briton people of the Scottish/English Borderlands. The first Allyncrown family lived in Roxburghshire (Borders) at Ancrum, a small village which had earlier been called Alncromb, which literally meant "a bend in the river Ale."

Allyncrown Early Origins



The surname Allyncrown was first found in Dumbartonshire, where they held a family seat in the lands of Ancrum from about the 11th century.

The Great Migration



The North American colonies beckoned, with their ample land and opportunity as their freedom from the persecution suffered by so many Clan families back home. Many Scots even fought against England in the American War of Independence to gain this freedom. Recently, clan societies have allowed the ancestors of these brave Scottish settlers to rediscover their familial roots. Among them: William Ancrum who settled in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1766.

Motto

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: Hold fast
Motto Translation: Hold fast
