Jenkinson History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Jenkinson family name is linked to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from the baptismal name for the son of Jenkin, which was a diminutive of John. Baptismal names are a type of patronymic surname, which come from religious and vernacular given name traditions. In this case, the surname Jenkinson derived from the popular biblical name John, which comes from John the Apostle.

Early Origins of the Jenkinson family


The surname Jenkinson was first found in Yorkshire 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.

Jenkinson Spelling Variations


Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Jenkinson include Jenkinson, Jankinson and others.

Migration of the Jenkinson family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Jenkinson were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:

The Jenkinson 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: Pareo non servo
Motto Translation: I am obedient no servile.
