Spelling variations of this family name include: Sneyd, Sneed, Snead, Sneade, Sneeds and others.

First found in Staffordshire where one of the first on record was Henry de Sneyd who married Margaret, the daughter and heiress of Nicholas de Tunstall, of the Tunstalls of Lancashire and Yorkshire, in 1310. "The noble race of Sneyds, of great worship and account, appear to be denominated from Snead, a hamlet in the parish of Tunstall, in this county, where they were seated as early as the reign of Henry III. By marriage with the heiress of Tunstall they had other lands in that parish, and for two descents were called Sneyd alias Tunstall." [1] "The arms of this family are a 'curiosity of heraldry,' being partly of the allusive kind, and consisting of a scythe and a fleur-de-lis. The pun is in the handle of the scythe, provincially called a snead. The fleur-de-lis said to have been added by Richard de Tunstall; alias Sneyd, after the battle of Poictiers; but I should rather consider it to have been part of the original device." [2]

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: Nec opprimere nec opprimi
Motto Translation: Neither to oppress nor to be oppressed.
