The name Wallerount reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Wallerount family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Wallerount is based on the Norman given name Waleran.

Wallerount Early Origins



The surname Wallerount 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."

"For many years the Walronds, living at their venerable mansion of Bradfield, were a powerful family in Devonshire." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Wallerount Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Wallerount has been recorded under many different variations, including Walrond, Walerend, Walerond, Waleran and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Wallerounts were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Thomas Walrond, who settled in Barbados in 1680 with his servants; Jonas Wallren arrived in Philadelphia in 1858.

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