Sant History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The surname Sant first came to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from the Old French "sant," meaning "saint," and was most likely first bestowed as a nickname either on someone of saintly character or in an ironic way on someone of loose morals.

Early Origins of the Sant family


The surname Sant was first found in Yorkshire, where Roger le Sent was recorded to be living in 1250. The nickname origin of the name makes it likely that several branches of the Sant family emerged independently in different areas during the Middle Ages.
