The Strathclyde-Briton people of ancient Scotland were the first to use the name Alyncromb. The Alyncromb 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."

Alyncromb Early Origins



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

The Great Migration



Many Scots were left with few options other than to leave their homeland for the colonies across the Atlanti c. Some of these families fought to defend their newfound freedom in the American War of Independence. Others went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these families have recently been able to rediscover their roots through Clan societies and other Scottish organizations. 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
