The name Waraner came to England with the ancestors of the Waraner family in the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Waraner family lived in Wiltshire. Their name, however, is a reference to Garenne, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Waraner Early Origins



The surname Waraner was first found in Wiltshire where they held a family seat from early times, where they were Lords of the manor of Conock, and were from Garenne in Normandy, and Warrener of Warrener is mentioned on the Honour Rolls of the Battle Abbey as being in Hastings at 1066. They later became the Earls of Surrey in 1089 but the title was forfeited. They retained their lands of Warrener in Wiltshire until the time of King John in 1201.

Waraner Spelling Variations



Multitudes of spelling variations are a hallmark of Anglo Norman names. Most of these names evolved in the 11th and 12th century, in the time after the Normans introduced their own Norman French language into a country where Old and Middle English had no spelling rules and the languages of the court were French and Latin. To make matters worse, medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, so names frequently appeared differently in the various documents in which they were recorded. The name was spelled Warrender, Warrander, Warrener and others.

The Great Migration



Because of this political and religious unrest within English society, many people decided to immigrate to the colonies. Families left for Ireland, North America, and Australia in enormous numbers, traveling at high cost in extremely inhospitable conditions. The New World in particular was a desirable destination, but the long voyage caused many to arrive sick and starving. Those who made it, though, were welcomed by opportunities far greater than they had known at home in England. Many of these families went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Waraner or a variant listed above:

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: Industria evehit
Motto Translation: Industry promotes
