The ancestors of the name Hendmarsh date back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from their residence in an area referred to as the Hindmarsh in the North Riding of Yorkshire. This surname was a local name for a place that was known for low lying ground and the deer that were found there. It was originally derived from the Old English words hind, which means a female deer and march which literally refers to a swamp covered clearing.

Hendmarsh Early Origins



The surname Hendmarsh was first found in Northumberland where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Hendmarshs to arrive on North American shores: James, John and Mary Hindmarsh who settled in Virginia in 1738.

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: Nil nisi patria
Motto Translation: Nothing without one’s country.
