Wollerond is an ancient name whose history on English soil dates back to the wave of emigration that followed the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. The name comes from the Norman given name Waleran.

Wollerond Early Origins



The surname Wollerond 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]

Wollerond 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 Walrond, Walerend, Walerond, Waleran 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 Wollerond or a variant listed above: 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.
