The ancestors of the Hyndmarshe surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they 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.

Hyndmarshe Early Origins



The surname Hyndmarshe 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

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: 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.
