Warronder is an ancient Norman name that arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Warronder 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.

Warronder Early Origins



The surname Warronder 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.

Warronder 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 Warrender, Warrander, Warrener and others.

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 Atlantic. 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 Warronder or a variant listed above: John Warrener who arrived in New York in 1820.

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
