Annand History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
Annand was first used as a surname in the Scottish/English Borderlands by the Strathclyde-Briton. The first Annand family lived in Dumfriesshire at Annan or Annandale.
Early Origins of the Annand family
The surname Annand was first found in Dumfriesshire where the first records of the family were "William de Anand [who] witnessed a grant of two camcates in the fee of Egilfechan to Robert de Brus, 1249, and John de Anand was cleric of William, bishop of Glasgow, 1255." 
"A family of this name, prominent in Angus from at least the thirteenth century, derived their name from the lands of Inyaney or Aneny now called Ananias. In old records the place name appears as Annand, Annane, Annanie, Inyaney, Inieneny, Inyoney, Invanee, Inneane, and Inianey. Adam de Anand, canon of Dunkeld, who witnessed charters by Gamelin, bishop of St. Andrews, between 1255—1271, is perhaps first of the name recorded. He is probably A, de Anand, rector of Monimail, 1269. William de Anaund of Forfarshire rendered homage in 1296."

The Annand 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 Translation: I will hope.
