Frowand History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The Anglo-Saxon name Frowand comes from a baptismal nameFrewen. Baptismal names began to appear as surnames relatively late in the growth of the naming tradition.

Nevertheless, surnames derived from baptismal names grew in popularity during the Middle Ages, and have become one of the foremost sources for surnames.

An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Frowand arrived in North America very early: William Frewen who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1716; Patrick and John Frewen arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1866; Thomas and Mary Frewin arrived in Philadelphia in 1774..

Motto: Mutare non est meum
Motto Translation: It is not my nature to change.
