JORDAN Family History

Recorded in many spellings as shown below, this was originally a popular English and French personal name given especially to the children of the Knight Templars, known as The Crusaders. These people were both soldiers and pilgrims and the often returned with flasks of water taken from the River Jordan, and this was used for the baptism of their children. The word derives from the Hebrew 'yarden' meaning 'to descend' (to the Dead Sea). The personal Latinized form of the name, Jordanus, is first recorded in the registers of the abbey of Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, in 1121, whilst Jurdanus de Brakenberge appears in the Danelaw Rolls of Lincoln in 1191...

    This specific crest you have here is the variation from the MacSiurtain clan of Jordan DeExeter, the Sheriff of County Mayo, Ireland. He also earned the Percussus Resurgo" motto, due to his heroics in the Crusades -- it seems to have been adopted across all Jordan clans now. Some confuse this crest with other crests, but growing up, this was always the crest displayed in our home, with the the "Percussus Resurgo" motto emblazoned underneath.

    Hello, trying to find my family Jordan roots, everything seems to point to Roscommon. I know they were living in Sculcoates, Hull, Yorkshire but before this i am struggling to find more info. Thank you.
