An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The origins of the name Mannynge are from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the Old English personal name Manning. According to some experts, this name is derived from the Old Norse word manningi, which means a valiant man. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
Another source claims that the surname was an "ancient personal name." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

However, one source claims that name was an ancient Norman name that must have moved to England at some point. Lambert Maignon was listed in Normandy in 1180 and a few years later, William, Ansketel le Maignen was also found in Normandy 1180-1185. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Mannynge Spelling Variations

Mannynge Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Mannynge family name include Manning, Maning, Mannings and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Mannynge surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Anne and Edmund Maning, who settled in New England in 1635; Peter, John, Joan and Jane Maning settled in Virginia in 1635; Joseph, Jacob, Margaret, Mary, Sarah and Thomas Manning all settled in Boston in 1679.

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: Esse quam videri
Motto Translation: To be, rather than to seem.
