Sawndlan Early Origins



The surname Sawndlan was first found in the Upper Ward of Clydesdale and were from the lands of Sandliands. These were lands that were traditionally held by the Douglasses in the early 14th century, hence their relationship as sept of the Clan Douglas. James Sandilands, armiger, was a vassal of William, the 1st Earl of Douglas and obtained a grant of lands in Peeblesshire from David II in 1336. In 1348 he became possessor of the lands of Sandilands and Redmyre by charter from William, lord of Douglas. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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: Spero Meliora
Motto Translation: I hope for better things.
