Saundement History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Saundement name was coined by the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Saundement was originally a name given to someone who worked as 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 Saundement family


The surname Saundement 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 Saundement family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Saundement or a variant listed above: Charles Sandman settled in Philadelphia in 1756; and the family settled in Newfoundland at Torbay in the 19th century.

The Saundement 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.
