Runciman History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Runciman family


The surname Runciman was first found in Oxfordshire where they held a family seat since the arrival of their Norman ancestors with Duke William the Conqueror in 1066. The name, being of Norman origin comes from an Old French word: "roncin," meaning "workhorse." Undoubtedly of occupational origin, the name was probably given to someone who tended to workhorses. Another possibility is that it was given to a "workhorse" of a person, ie one who did hard physical labor for a living.
