Anstroder Early Origins



The surname Anstroder was first found in Fife, where the Clan derives its name from the ancient barony of Anstruther. The lands of Anstruther were granted to William of Candela, who had previously been granted lands in Dorset in the south of England after the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D. He was descended from Raoul de Malherbe, a Danish noble, a Viking, a close companion of Rollo, the first Duke of Normandy. Their descendants held lands in Devon, Dorset, and Kent after the Conquest.

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: Periissem ni per-iissem
Motto Translation: I would have perished, if I had not persevered.
