Spelling variations of this family name include: Sladen, Sladean, Slayden, Sladon, Slaydon, Sleighdon, Sleighden, Sladden, Slayton, Sleyton, Sleydon, Slaidon, Slaiton, Sladden and many more.

First found in Lancashire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Sladen in the parish of Littleborough. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1379 when Johannes Sladen held a family seat there.

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: Vive ut vivas
Motto Translation: Live that you may live for ever
