Where did the English Vynche family come from? What is the English Vynche family crest and coat of arms? When did the Vynche family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Vynche family history?

The ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of England produced the name of Vynche. It was given to a person who was referred to as a finch deriving from the small songbird's name. The surname may have also an occupational origin, denoting someone who caught and sold finches.

One relatively recent invention that did much to standardize English spelling was the printing press. However, before its invention even the most literate people recorded their names according to sound rather than spelling. The spelling variations under which the name Vynche has appeared include Finch, Vinch, Vynch, Fynch, Vince, Vynche and others.

First found in Hertfordshire where they held a family seat from ancient times, some say before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.

At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Vynche arrived in North America very early: Abraham Finch who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1630 with his three sons; Benjamin Finch settled in Barbados in 1678 with his wife and his daughter.

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: Nil conscire sibi
Motto Translation: To have a conscience free from guilt.
