An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancestors of the Wallderan family first reached the shores of England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. Their name is derived from the Norman given name Waleran.

Wallderan Early Origins



The surname Wallderan was first found in Devon where the name is believed to be descended from Waleran, the great Baron of Essex, Count of Meulan in Normandy. The family was first found at Bradfield, in Uffculm as early as Henry III. "The original deed of transfer of Bradfelde from Fulke Paynel, Lord of Brampton, to one Walerande, an ancestor, temp. King John, is still in the possession of the family. It would appear that the family were resident there before the date of that grant, under the name De Bradfelle, in 1154; and that Waleran or Walrond was assumed early in the reign of King John."

Wallderan Spelling Variations

Wallderan Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Walrond, Walerend, Walerond, Waleran and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlanti c. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Wallderan or a variant listed above: Thomas Walrond, who settled in Barbados in 1680 with his servants; Jonas Wallren arrived in Philadelphia in 1858.

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: Sic vos non vobis
Motto Translation: So you not for yourselves.
