Normond History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The Normond surname is ultimately derived from the Scandinavian word "noromenn," meaning "men from the north." It came to Britain with pre-Conquest Scandianavian settlers, and became a personal name among the Saxons. This name also came to Britain following the Norman conquest; in this instance, it was most likely a name for someone from the town of Normanville in the French province of Normandy.

Early Origins of the Normond family

The surname Normond was first found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, where they were granted lands by King David of Scotland. "Norman was also a surname in Dumfriesshire in thirteenth century." [1]

Early records of the family first appeared in their Latin form. One of the first records notes Normanus as a witness of David's great charter to Holyrood in circa 1128. Years later, Nonnannus, constapularius de Enneroury (Invsrurie), was charter witness, c. 1180 and William, son of Norman, burgess of Aberdeen, was one of the witnesses to a charter by Fergus, earl of Buchan, c. 1189-99. John Normand, was juror on inquisition in Roxbergh in 1303. [1]

The Normond 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: Auxillium ab alto
Motto Translation: Aid from above.
