Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Hindmarch is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived 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.

Hindmarch Early Origins



The surname Hindmarch 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.

Hindmarch Spelling Variations



The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Hindmarch has been spelled many different ways, including Hindmarsh, Hindmarshe, Hyndmarsh, Hendmarsh and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Hindmarchs to arrive in North America:

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.
