Stlawrend History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The surname Stlawrend is derived from the Old English personal names Lorens and Laurence, which were derived from the Latin name Laurentius. This name referred to a man from Laurentum, a town in Italy that was probably named for its laurels or bay trees. St. Lawrence, who was born in Huesca in Spain, became a deacon of Rome and was martyred in 258 AD, during the persecution of Valerianus. He gained a large following throughout Europe.

Migration of the Stlawrend family to the New World and Oceana


The Irish emigration during the late 18th and 19th century contributed to the melting pot of nationalities in North America, and the building of a whole new era of industry and commerce in what was seen as a rich, new land. Ireland's Great Potato Famine resulted in the worst economic and social conditions in the island's history. And in response to the hunger, disease, and poverty, during this decade the total number of emigrants to leave for North America rivaled all the previous years combined. Those from this decade that arrived on North American shores were not warmly welcomed by the established population, but they were vital to the rapid development of the industry, agriculture, and infrastructure of the infant nations of the United States and what would become Canada. Research into early immigration and passenger lists has shown many people bearing the name Stlawrend: Thady St. Laurence who arrived in Canada in 1847; Etiene St Lawrence arrived in New York State in 1775.

The Stlawrend 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: Qui pense
Motto Translation: Who thinks
