Annadaill Spelling Variations

The variation in the spelling of Medieval names is a result of the lack of spelling rules in the English language prior to the last few hundred years. Before that time, scribes spelled according to sound, often varying the spelling of name within a single document. Annadaill has appeared as Annan, Annand, Annandale, Annardale, Annadaill, Annane, Annanie, Inyaney, Innieney, Inyoney, Inyanee, Aneny and many more.

Migration of the Annadaill family to the New World and Oceana

As the persecution of Clan families continued, they sailed for North America in increasing numbers. In most cases, they found the freedom and opportunity they sought. Land was often available and the American War of Independence allowed Scots an opportunity to solidify their independence from the English crown. These settlers and their ancestors went on to play essential roles in the forging of the nations of the United States and Canada. Among them: J. L. Annan arrived in San Francisco, California, in 1850; and William Annan arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1875; with his brother.

The Annadaill 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: Sperabo
Motto Translation: I will hope.
