Jurdint Early Origins



The surname Jurdint was first found in Suffolk, where the name first appeared in the early 12th century. Like many surnames, the name Jurdint 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.

Jurdint Spelling Variations

Jurdint Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Jurdint has been recorded under many different variations, including Jordan, Jordain, Jorden, Jordana, Jordens, Jordin, Jourdain, Jourdan and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Jurdints were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in 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..

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