Early Origins of the Jurdind family


The surname Jurdind was first found in Suffolk, where the name first appeared in the early 12th century. Like many surnames, the name Jurdind was taken from a common personal name at the time. The personal name Jordan (and the female equivalent, Jordana) comes from the River Jordan; some knights and soldiers returning from the Crusades brought some of the water of the River Jordan back with them to baptize their children with and therefore gave the name to those children. That someone's first name was taken as a surname may have indicated that the first bearer of the name was related or owed allegiance to someone of that name, or it may have been an arbitrary choice.

Jurdind Spelling Variations


Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Jurdind family name include Jordan, Jordain, Jorden, Jordana, Jordens, Jordin, Jourdain, Jourdan and many more.

Migration of the Jurdind family to the New World and Oceana

Migration of the Jurdind family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Jurdind family to immigrate North America: Thomas Jordan, who came to Virginia in 1623; as well as William Jorden, who arrived in Maryland in 1668 and Ann Margarett Jordon, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1792..

The Jurdind Motto

The Jurdind 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: Percussa Resurgo
Motto Translation: Struck down, I rise again
