Origin: After nearly a century of family research, the origin of the Yancey family and the Yancey name itself, for the most part, still lie in obscurity. The history of the Yancey family has been traced back to the early 1700's to the colony of Virginia where branches of the family were living in the counties of New Kent, Hanover, Louisa, Spotsylvania and Culpeper. Where did these families come from? When and how did they immigrate to America? How did the name itself originate? These are questions that have eluded Yancey researchers for decades, most of the answers to which still lie undiscovered. What follows is not the discussion of any recent major discovery concerning the origin of the family, but a general summary of the various theories and traditions concerning the history of the family as well as some rather general information concerning life in Virginia during the 17th century. This is given to help the reader develop some general insight as to who our early Yancey ancestors were, and what life may have been like for them in the early Virginia Colony.

Origin: While I have heard a story similar to that above, I have never heard that meaning. I have heard that the name Yandell was a derivative of a word that meant steep.

I paid thirty dollars for this but I am not convinced that this is accurate. It basically says that Yandell is a derivative of Johnson. The woman I bought this from had two other name origins for Yandell but this is the oldest known. The second one she showed me was for the English or Welsh derivative that came latter. I myself am a descendant from the Welsh Yandell?s. I may purchase it later if I cannot find the it myself on the net. I have also found two different coat of arms than the one described below as well.

Surnames in Germany vary greatly due to regional variations. Most German surnames belong to some form of local derivation. Kinship names are more often adopted from given names as opposed to baptismal names of saints and popular figures. In eastern parts of Germany names were influenced greatly from neighboring countries.

The surname Yandell appears to be a variant of the German surname Handel which is of family origin. Surnames, also designated as family names, or alternatively a last name were added to a given, or baptismal name. This name was in many cases inherited and held collectively by members foremost being the father. In this case the name means ?the son of Hans? i.e. the German and Swedish form of John which is Hebrew origin meaning ?God is gracious?. The popularity of the given name was influenced by the fact that this was the name of one of the twelve apostles and a writer of the Gospel of John.

The earliest recorded references to the surname of Handel or a variant appear to be found in German documents from at least the 16th century when Simon Haindl was mentioned in Steyr records in 1597.

The arms described below were granted to the Handel family of Bavaria in 1579 and are recorded in the ?Armorial General? produced by JB Rietstap which was first published in 1884 and describes the armorial bearings of the noble families of Europe.

Blazon of Arms: Or, a bull?s head affrontee sable. The tincture or depicts gold or yellow and indicates the bearer was generous, alternatively it indicates elevation of the mind.

Origin: It is a rare English Matronymic name -- that is, it comes from the name of the mother instead of the father. It is derived from the Germanic female given name Hildegard (Saxon or Norman in origin), comprised of Germanic elements hild = battle, strife + gard = fortress, strength. It is disputed as to whether this surname is Saxon or Norman derived, as the name was used by both, however, the Matronymic nature of the name suggests the former due to the patriarchal societal structure and culture of the Normans.

Origin: I believe that the name was originally gates, ie the keeper of the gates of the village ( trade name such as smith tailor etc) and the g became silent. While working in Sweden many years ago I was told there that the name was an old Swedish name meaning a goatherd. On returning to the UK I looked up some references to heraldry and found a Yates coat of arms with both gates and goats' heads. The motto "pro rege pro patria' for king and country.

Origin: Though this had been much debated, it appears to mean "FALLING STAR"or "the comet that will kill us all". The first syllable can be likened to the words "wan", "wane" or "yang", the first par is a negative drive. And dell is akin to "tell" ""stelle" or "devil". It is not surprising that the tribe consisted of looters, marauders, pillagers, rapists and murders. The name doesn't refer to their fall necesarrily, but to the 'stars' or light around them as well.
