The name Warwander was brought to England in the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Warwander 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.

Warwander Early Origins



The surname Warwander 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.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Warwander were among those contributors: John Warrener who arrived in New York in 1820.

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: Industria evehit
Motto Translation: Industry promotes
