Early Origins of the Dandases family


The surname Dandases was first found in West Lothian. It is generally believed that the surname was acquired when Helias, son of Uctred secured the lands of Dundas from Waldeve, son of Gospatric through a charter agreement during the reign of Malcom IV. The document fails to list the precise date of the charter, though the time of the transaction is confirmed by alternative supporting evidence. A saying made famous among respective Clan members is recorded as follows: "any prime minister can raise a man to the House of Lords, but it takes seven centuries of Scottish history to make a Dundas of Dundas." Some of the family held estates at Aske, in the North Riding of Yorkshire in later times. "Aske Hall, one of the seats of the Earl of Zetland, is a spacious and elegant castellated mansion, situated on rising ground in a large and beautiful park, and embosomed in noble woods of fine old timber, and pleasure-grounds of varied surface: many of the views from the residence are of striking beauty. The noble earl's inferior title is Baron Dundas of the manor of Aske, conferred in 1794." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Dandases Motto

The Dandases 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: Essayez
Motto Translation: Try.
