Rhyndes History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Rhyndes family


The surname Rhyndes 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. It is doubtless territorial, and derived either from the parish of Rhynd, co. Perth, or from the estate of Rhind, in Fifeshire." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
George Fraser Black in his Surnames of Scotland, explores the history and lineage in more detail. "From the parish of Rhynd in Perthshire. William de Rynd was a charter witness in Aberdeen, 1342. Although Rynd or Rhynd is now a somewhat rare name in Angus it is of considerable antiquity in that county. Rinds or Rynds figure in feuds with Ogilvies, Guthries, and other neighbors there. Murthacus (Murdoch) del Rynde had a gift from David II of four oxgates of land in the royal hunting forest of Plater and four oxgates of Casse in 1366. " [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Rhyndes family to the New World and Oceana


Scots left their country by the thousands to travel to Australia and North America. Desperate for freedom and an opportunity to fend for themselves, many paid huge fees and suffered under terrible conditions on long voyages. Still, for those who made the trip, freedom and opportunity awaited. In North America, many fought their old English oppressors in the American War of Independence. In recent years, Scottish heritage has been an increasingly important topic, as Clan societies and other organizations have renewed people's interest in their history. An examination of passenger and immigration lists shows many early settlers bearing the name of Rhyndes: Good Rhind settled in New York State in 1804.

The Rhyndes 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.
