Early Origins of the Rhynd family
The surname Rhynd was first found in Perthshire
, in the parish of Rhynd. "The name occurs in the Chartulary of Moray early in the XIII. century and it has been variously spelt Rhynd, Rhind, Rynd and Rind.

Migration of the Rhynd family to the New World and Oceana
The expense of the crossing to the North American colonies seemed small beside the difficulties of remaining in Scotland
. It was a long and hard trip, but at its end lay the reward of freedom. Some Scots remained faithful to England
and called themselves United Empire Loyalists, while others fought in the American War of Independence
. Much of this lost Scottish heritage has been recovered in the last century through Clan
societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important, early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Rhynd:

The Rhynd 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: Diuturnitate fragrantior
Motto Translation: long-time fragant.
