In the ancient Scottish-English border region, the ancestors of the name Lummisdent lived among the Boernician clans and families. They lived in the parish of Coldingham, Berwickshire. They derived their name from the name of their manor, Lumsden. The name means Lumm's Valley in Old English, from the personal name Lumm.

Early Origins of the Lummisdent family


The surname Lummisdent was first found in Berwickshire an ancient county of Scotland, presently part of the Scottish Borders Council Area, located in the eastern part of the Borders Region of Scotland, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Migration of the Lummisdent family to the New World and Oceana


Many of the Boernician-Scottish families who crossed the Atlantic settled along the eastern seaboard in communities that would become the backbone of the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. In the War of Independence, American families that remained loyal to the Crown moved north into Canada and became known as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestral culture of all of these proud Scottish families remains alive in North America in the 20th century through Clan societies and highland games. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Lummisdent or a variant listed above: Henry Lumsden, who settled in Maryland in 1715; James Lumsden settled in Virginia in 1774.

The Lummisdent 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: Dei dono sum quod sum
Motto Translation: By the bounty of God I am what I am.
