This surname of NIND was of the locational group of surname meaning 'the dweller at the end of the village or settlement'. The name was originally rendered in the Old English form ENDE and is also spelt NINDE, NEND and NENDE. The earliest of the name on record appears to be Adam ATTENENDE, who was recorded in County Somerset in the year 1260. and Thomas atte NENDE was documented in 1327 in County Surrey. Surnames derived from placenames are divided into two broad categories; topographic names and habitation names. Topographic names are derived from general descriptive references to someone who lived near a physical feature such as an oak tree, a hill, a stream or a church. Habitation names are derived from pre-existing names denoting towns, villages and farmsteads. Other classes of local names include those derived from the names of rivers, individual houses with signs on them, regions and whole countries. Later instances of the name include John atte NENDE of Yorkshire, who was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379, and Christopher NEND appears in York in the year 1443. William NIND and Sarah Preston were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in the year 1795. Over the centuries, most people in Europe have accepted their surname as a fact of life, as irrevocable as an act of God. However much the individual may have liked or disliked the surname, they were stuck with it, and people rarely changed them by personal choice. A more common form of variation was in fact involuntary, when an official change was made, in other words, a clerical error. In the Middle Ages the Herald (old French herault) was an officer whose duty it was to proclaim war or peace, carry challenges to battle and messages between sovereigns; nowadays war or peace is still proclaimed by the heralds, but their chief duty as court functionaries is to superintend state ceremonies, such as coronations, installations, and to grant arms. Edward III (1327-1377) appointed two heraldic kings-at-arms for south and north, England in 1340. The English College of Heralds was incorporated by Richard III in 1483-84. The associated coat of arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burke's General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. Registered at Reading and Hawthorns Harchatch, County Berkshire.
