When the ancestors of the Dobbynd family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They lived in Gloucestershire. This family was originally from St. Aubin, Normandy, and it is from the local form of this place-name, D'Aubin, which literally translates as from Aubin, that their surname derives.

Early Origins of the Dobbynd family


The surname Dobbynd was first found in Gloucestershire where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Dobbynd Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Dobbynd has been recorded under many different variations, including Dobyns, Dobbins, Dobbings, Dobyn, Dobbin, Dobbyn and many more.

Migration of the Dobbynd family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Dobbynds were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: George Dobbins who settled in Nevis in 1663; Richard Dobbins settled in Virginia in 1651; Robert Dobbin settled in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1821.

The Dobbynd Motto

The Dobbynd 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: Re e merito
Motto Translation: This through merit.
