Hyndmarsh is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Hyndmarsh family once 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.

Hyndmarsh Early Origins



The surname Hyndmarsh 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.

Hyndmarsh Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Hyndmarsh family name include Hindmarsh, Hindmarshe, Hyndmarsh, Hendmarsh and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Hyndmarsh surname or a spelling variation of the name include: 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 ones country.
