Jardine History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

Jardine was first used as a surname in the Scottish/English Borderlands by the Strathclyde-Briton. The first Jardine family lived in Angus. Jardine is thought to have been a Norman name that made it's way North into Scotland. It is ultimately derived from the Old French word jardin, or "garden." Further research indicates that the family settled very early in the barony of Gardyne in the parish of Kirkden, Angus. It is from these lands that the family takes its name; although a more literal interpretation of the name would mean 'of the garden.' The family also held estates in Arbroath, Aberdeen, Banff and Perth for centuries.

Early Origins of the Jardine family

The surname Jardine was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, where one of the first official records was Winefredus de Jardine in 1153 when he witnessed charters by King David 1st to the Abbeys of Kelso and Arbroath.
