Lindemuth Early Origins



The surname Lindemuth was first found in Hessen, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. Chronicles first mention Hainrich der Lind in Constance in 1254. Literally this meant Hainrich the "tender" or "good-hearted," and Lind became the shortened form of the full name "Lindemuth" (Lindt and Lind are to be distinguished from the name "Linde" which comes from "Linden" meaning "lime tree").

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: Sub Manu Solius Dei
Motto Translation: Under the hand of the kingdom of God.
