The name Saundiehan is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name was taken on by 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.

Saundiehan Early Origins



The surname Saundiehan 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



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Charles Sandman settled in Philadelphia in 1756; and the family settled in Newfoundland at Torbay in the 19th century.

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.
