Ronde History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Ronde family

The surname Ronde was first found in Essex where Radulfus Rotundus is found in the Pipe Rolls of 1130.[1]

"About 1272, Arnulf de Rondes, Robert his son, and Alicia de Rondes occur in the Hundredorum Rolls for Huntingdonshire. A family of the name is now domiciled in Essex; but this is nothing more than a coincidence, for it was not till 1724 that their ancestor James Round, citizen of London, purchased Birch Hall, near Colchester, their present seat." [2]

Another source notes that Ralph Rund was listed in the Feet of Fines for Essex in 1202 and Alecok Ronde was listed in the Assize Rolls for Lancashire in 1246. [3]

The Ronde 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.
