Warwender is a name that was carried to England in the great wave of migration from Normandy following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Warwender 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.

Warwender Early Origins



The surname Warwender 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



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Warwenders to arrive on North American shores: 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
