Danskin History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Danskin family


The surname Danskin was first found in Dundee, where they held a family seat in their territories. The Pictish influence on Scottish history diminished after Kenneth Macalpine became King of all Scotland. But those east coast families still played an important role in government and were more accessible to Government than their western highland counterparts. Black has it that this name came to us from Danzig in Poland. We would opine that this name Danskine was one of many surviving Scottish families who joined Gustavus Adolphus in his Thirty Years War. Later they held estates at Dunblane.

The Danskin 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: Nec improvidus
Motto Translation: Not eager
