The origins of the Hynarshe name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon
culture. It comes from when the family 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
which literally refers to a swamp covered clearing.
Early Origins of the Hynarshe family
The surname Hynarshe 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.

Migration of the Hynarshe family to the New World and Oceana
To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England
went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Hynarshe family emigrate to North America: James, John and Mary Hindmarsh who settled in Virginia in 1738.
The Hynarshe 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.
