Sandimane History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Sandimane is an Anglo-Saxon name. The name was originally given to a person who was employed as the servant of Sandy or Saunder. Occupational names that were derived from the common trades of the medieval era transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries. The most common suffixes for occupational names are maker, herd, hewer, smith, er, ing, and man.

Early Origins of the Sandimane family


The surname Sandimane was first found in Perthshire in Scotland where they held a family seat from about the year 1550 at Alyth. According to Barber the name is derived from Sandys in Cumberland, rather than of Danish or Dutch extraction.(Men of Truth).

Migration of the Sandimane family to the New World and Oceana


At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Sandimane arrived in North America very early: Charles Sandman settled in Philadelphia in 1756; and the family settled in Newfoundland at Torbay in the 19th century.

The Sandimane 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: Stat Veritas
Motto Translation: Truth Stands.
