Origin of the Name Johns

The origin of the name Johns was found in the archives. The name Johns has a number of variants including John, Johnes, Johne and even Johnson. This name is usually of Scottish descent spreading to Ireland , England and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Alexander Johnson, of Aberdeen, Scotland , who received letters of denisation in England in the year 1480. A Nicholas Johnson was a Burgess of Ayr, Scotland , in the year 1503. A Walter Jonesone of Berwickshire rendered homage in 1296. In Ireland the name is often found in Ulster Province where it was introduced from Scotland especially during the seventeenth century. It may also be an anglicized form of the Gaelic McShane and McKeown names which translate from their native Gaelic meaning as 'son of John'
The Johns coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Johns descendants.
