The name Sandman has been recorded in British history since the time when the Anglo-Saxons ruled over the region. The name is assumed to have been given to someone who was 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.

Sandman Early Origins



The surname Sandman 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).

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Sandmans to arrive in North America:

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: Stat Veritas
Motto Translation: Truth Stands.
