Origin, Meaning, Family History and Christian Coat of Arms and Family Crest

Meaning, Origin, Etymology Isle of Man
The surname Christian is derived from the Latin personal name “Christianas”, which means belonging to Christ.  (Anglo-Latin-Greek) Anointed [from Latin Christus, Greek χριστός, anointed], (English) Descendant of Christian (follower of Christ), Flemish: Christaen, Dutch: Christan, Swedish: Christen; and German: Christian, all being personal given names.  It is a name that was used as the son of an ancestor such as ‘the son of Christian’. Christianus was the name of a bishop of Candida Casa (Whithorn) who died at Holm Cultram in 1186. This surname is very common in some parts of Scotland. There is a story that is told by Sir Walter Scott of a gaberlunzie woman who in the bitterness of her disappointment exclaimed:  “Are there no Christians here?” and she was answered with: “Christians! nae, we be a ‘Elliots and Armstrangs!”. When leprosy was the scourge of Europe, the disease was sometimes personal, and the patient was called lazarius or ladre; sometimes hereditary, and then the sufferers were termed Giezites and Les Gezits, from Gehazi, the false servant of Elisha, from whom they were believed to be descended. Sometimes they were called Cagots de Chanaan, lepers of Canaan, from this belief; but “their most curious title, Crestiaas or Christians, was not given them in direct affirmation, but in denial of a negative, ‘ not non-Christian, ‘ because being considered of Gehazi’s lineage,-not only Jews, but Jews under a curse,-many would be disposed to repel them from communion.”

The following is an excerpt from is from Manx Families, A.W.Moore, MS 1889 by A.W. Moore: “A family of Scandinavian origin, the MacCristens, or Christins, or, as they now call themselves, Christians, must have attained an important position in the Isle of Mann at an early date, as John McCristen, the first of whom there is any record, was one of the Judges or Deemsters in 1408 and a Member of the Tynwald Court in 1422. Of his three successors, who also bore the name of John, the first was seated at Altadale, in the Parish of Lezayre; the second was Deemster, from 1500-1510, and the third was also Deemster from 1511-1535. This later acquired the property adjoining Altadale and called the whole Milntown“.

CHRISTIAN FAMILY OF VIRGINIA (From William and Mary College Quarterly Historical Magazine, Vol. 5)
Owing to the destruction of the New Kent county records, and the partial destruction of the Charles City county records it is difficult to connect this family with any of the English families of the same name in the Isle of Man and other places.  Investigations in British wills and other records on the other side of the ocean may some day supply the loss. We know that the Virginia progenitor of the family was (1) Thomas Christian. As (1) Mr Thomas Christian he patented October 21, 1687, 1080 acres in Charles City county.  While the family did not assume in the eighteenth century the important position it has enjoyed in the nineteenth; the term Mr., accorded to the immigrant, is indicative of social standing. In 1694 (1) Thomas Christian Sr. got a patent for 193 acres south of Chickahominy Swamp. Then we find (2) Thomas Christian of Charles City county, patenting land (1712 and 1727) in the forks of Beaver Dam Creek in that part of Henrico called Goochland.  (3) Charles Christian of Charles City locating lands in the same vicinity. (4) James Christian in the same vicinity bounding on Thomas Christian’s line (1719). (5) John Christian of Charles City within in the same vicinity (1724). All of this furnishes strong presumptive evidence, in the absence of any other Christians mentioned in the records of Charles City and New Kent that (2) Thomas, (3) Charles, (4) James and (5) John were sons of (1) Thomas Christian Sr., the immigrant.  (2) Thomas Christians will was proved in Goochland county in 1736. He married Rebecca (perhaps the daughter of Drury Stith, near whom, in Charles City, Thomas Christian patented 1320 acres on Dec. 16, 1714) and had issue (6) Thomas (7) Robert (8) William of Albemarle county, living in 1756 (9) James (10) Constant (11) Rebecca (12) Ann (13) Mourning who married __Coleman. The will also mentions a grandson Thomas. (6) Thomas Christian. His will is recorded in Goochland county is dated October 23, 1743 and was proved March 20, 1743-44.  He married Rebecca ___, and had issue (14) Anthony born June 9, 1724 (St. Peter’s Parish Register), not mentioned in the will, but in a deed as ‘son & heir’ and as residing in Cumberland county in 1753 (Goochland county records); (15) Nathaniel (16) Thomas (17) Jesse (18) David (19) Lins (20) Archer (21) Mary (22) Susannah (23) Elizabeth. Thomas had property on Willis’ Creek. (7) Robert (Thomas, Thomas) lived in Albemarle county, which was cut out of Goochland. His will proved at May court, 1749, mentions wife Lucy, sister of William Bradley and issue (24) John (25) Robert (26) Drury (27) Lucy (28) Elizabeth.  (26) Drury Christian of Goochland county married Lucy Williams and had issue (29) James born April 30, 1758 (30) Gideon born August 16, 1760 (31) Ann born March 3, 1764 (32) Drury born August 18, 1766. (Register of Births, etc. kept by Rev. Wm. Douglas). (8) William (Thomas, Thomas). In 1756 he sold land in Goochland county given him by his father (2) Thomas Christian deceased. He styles himself of Albemarle county. (9) James (Thomas, Thomas). Will dated May 18, 1752, and proved in Goochland county, June 16, 1759. His wife Susannah, and James Christian exors. They had issue (33) Charles who died before 1761 (34) James died before 1794 (35) John of Buckingham county married Joyce __, and was living in 1805 (36) George who died about 1784-85.  (36) George (James, Thomas, Thomas) married and had issue (37) James, (38) Elizabeth (39) Charles (40) Sally. (3) Charles Christian Sr. (Thomas), of Westover Parish, Charles City, County, obtained numerous patents in Goochland. There is a record there of his deed of gift to Stephen Watkins of Amelia county, and his deed to (41) Charles Christian, Jr. of Goochland in 1754. (41) Charles Christian was perhaps the son of Charles Christian, of Westover Parish. His will was proved in Goochland county February 16, 1784 and mentions sons (42) William (43) Walter (44) George (45) Charles (46) John who married Judith Leek on May 9, 1771 (47) Elijah (48) Turner who married Anna the daughter of George Payne in June 1778 (49) Elizabeth who married John Humber of St. Paul’s Parish (50) Mary who married James Gishom (Grason) Dec. 19, 1770 (51) Judith who married Benjamin Lacy on Oct. 25, 1774 (52) Mourning.  He left land in Amelia county to son William. (4) James Christian (Thomas) of the parish of St. Peter’s, New Kent, had issue (53) Judith who was baptized May 21, 1711. He married Amy (perhaps a daughter of Gideon Macon of New Kent) and had also (54) Gideon born Feb. 5, 1727-28. There is on record a deed 1756 from Gideon Christon of Charles City county for 368 acres in Goochland, patented by James Christian March 11, 1711 and devised by said James to his son Gideon (55) Richard of Charles City (56) Joel of Charles City (57) William formerly of Goochland (58) James of St. Peter’s Parish, New Kent. (54) Gideon Christian married Susan the daughter of Wm. Browne of James City, and Alice Eaton. The had issue (59) Eaton (60) Francis (61) Patrick (62) William Allen (63) Anne (64) Alice (65) Fanny. (55) Richard Christian had issue (66) Samuel (67) Richard (68) Benjamin (69) Isahm. (58) James Christian who married Tabitha had issue (70) Joseph Christian born Sept. 4, 1757.  (5) John (Thomas). He appears to have died prior to 1768 and left a son and a daughter (71) John living in New Kent in 1773 (72) Mary born Oct. 8, 1735.
