An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2018


Today's generation of the Eppirder family inherits a name that was first used by the Scottish tribe known as the Picts. The first family to use the name Eppirder lived in Aberdeen (part of the modern Grampian region) and from Aberdour in Fife (which is now part of the region of Fife).

Eppirder Early Origins



The surname Eppirder was first found in Forfarshire part of the Tayside region of North Eastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, at the Abbey of Arbroath where William Abirdour witnessed a charter by the Earl of Huntlie in 1367. Another William Aberdour was Bailie for the Abbey of Arbroath in 1483.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many Scottish families suffered enormous hardships and were compelled to leave their country of birth. They traveled to Ireland and Australia, but mostly to the colonies of North America, where many found the freedom and opportunity they sought. It was not without a fight, though, as many were forced to stand up and defend their freedom in the American War of Independence. The ancestors of these Scots abroad have rediscovered their heritage in the last century through the Clan societies and other organizations that have sprung up across North America. Immigration and passenger ship lists show some important early immigrants bearing the name Eppirder: Charles Abirder settled in Georgia between 1790 and 1810.

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: Hinc spes effulget
Motto Translation: Hence hope shines forth.
