Joane Martyn: My 10th Great-Grandmother

A family with this surname was first found in Leicestershire, where the martyn family was seated from very early times. The family was granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. The family Coat of Arms is silver with a red chevron between two seashells at the top and a red cross in base. The Crest is a Talbot's head. The family motto translates to: "Sure and Steadfast."
   Our lineage to this family can be traced to ROBERT MARTYN, who was born around 1550 in Sherford, Devon, England. Robert married a woman named JOANE. She was born about 1538 in Sherford.
