The surname Stlawrent 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.

Stlawrent Early Origins

The Great Migration



Ireland's Great Potato Famine left the country's inhabitants in extreme poverty and starvation. Many families left their homeland for North America for the promise of work, freedom and land ownership. Although the Irish were not free of economic and racial discrimination in North America, they did contribute greatly to the rapid development of bridges, canals, roads, and railways. Eventually, they would be accepted in other areas such as commerce, education, and the arts. An examination of immigration and passenger lists revealed many bearing the name Stlawrent: Thady St. Laurence who arrived in Canada in 1847; Etiene St Lawrence arrived in New York State in 1775.

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: Qui pense
Motto Translation: Who thinks
