Roden Early Origins



The surname Roden was first found in Northumberland where they held a family seat at Roddam Hall since 1296 when William Roddam had the hall built. "Roddam Hall is a handsome modern mansion, standing on a bold eminence which on the north forms the bank of a deep romantic dell watered by a tributary of the Till. A stone coffin and an urn were dug up here in 1796." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
John of Roddam held land in Little Houghton in 1337. The Roddam family has held the hall until at least 1776 when it was owned by Admiral Robert Roddam (1719-1808). Roddam is derived from the Old English word "rod" which means "clearing" [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Hanks, Patricia and Flavia Hodges, A Dictionary of Surnames. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1988. Print. (ISBN 0-19-211592-8)
. Alternatively, the name could have been derived from the place name Rodden in Shropshire. There is also a Rodden river in Shropshire.

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: Nec deficit alter
Motto Translation: Another succeeds.
