Glenn Coat of Arms / Glenn Family Crest

The surname of GLENN was derived from the Old English word Glinde - the dweller by the enclosure. Local names usually denoted where a man held land. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land, and indicated where he actually lived. Almost every city, town or village existing in the Middle Ages has served to name one or more families. Where a man lived was his means of identification. When a man left his birthplace or village where he had been known, and went elsewhere, people would likely refer to him by the name of his former residence or birthplace, or by the name of the land which he owned. A number of bearers of the name Glynn can be traced to the manor of Glynn near Bodmin, Cornwall, where Hubert de Glin was living in the year 1100. Other records of the name mention Glinne (without surname) listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. Edward Glynne of County Somerset, was documented during the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). The names introduced into Britain by the Normans during and in the wake of the Invasion of 1066, are nearly all territorial in origin. The followers of William the Conqueror were a pretty mixed lot, and while some of them brought the names of their castles and villages in Normandy with them, many were adventurers of different nationalities attached to William's standard by the hope of plunder, and possessing no family or territorial names of their own. Those of them who acquired lands in England were called by their manors, while others took the name of the offices they held or the military titles given to them, and sometimes, a younger son of a Norman landowner, on receiving a grant of land in his new home dropped his paternal name and adopted that of his newly acquired property. The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Registered at Glynn, County Cornwall: an ancient family from the 14th century in Cornwall. Translation of arms: Argent (white) denotes peace and sincerity, and the salmon spears depicted in the arms is the symbol of noble birth. Sable (black) is sable fur. The talbot in the crest in the symbol of vigilancy, valour and perseverance.
