The roots of the Lumsdane family are in the Boernician tribe of ancient Scotland. The Lumsdane family 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.

Lumsdane Early Origins



The surname Lumsdane 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.

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.
