Manrique Family Crest

Good afternoon, today I have for you the family crest of the last name Manrique. Mr. Pablo Andrés Manriquez Galvao, requested the shield of the last name MANRIQUEZ, in the  Spanish Nobiliary I found the last name Manrique, without the “Z”, and it is not specific about it being the same in two forms. Eventually I found in a source of Anglo-Saxon heraldry, the statement that they are the same last name. I took more time since I wanted to verify such statement.

manriqueDerived Castilian last name of the name Manrique. The trunk of this lineage seems to be in Toba of Valdivielso, in the county of Burgos. Another house was located in Salamanca, and another in the Villa of Benavente and one more in Tarazona. This last name proved its nobility in Santiago’s Order and San Juan de Jerusalem Order. Don José Manrique de Arana was created Marquis of Villa Alegre de Andollo on December 7, 1685; don Nicolás Manrique de Lara, became Marquis of Lara on December 10,1739, and don Jerónimo Manrique de Lara, became Count of Almudez de Toledo on February 23, 1790.
Its Arms: In gules field, two boilers jaqueladas of gold and sable, on a column, with four sinople serpents, sticking out of each side of the handles, two towards inside and two towards out. Motto “US NON OF KING, KINGS COME FROM US.”

  1. Amazing. I’ve always wondered about my surname. Thank you very much for posting this. One quick question though…”US NON OF KING…”

    What does that mean?

  2. Pablo thank you for visiting our blog. the “MOTTO” means, “we do not come from kings, kings come from us” does that makes sense? tell your friends about us!

  3. Excelent.

    Looks like i’ve heard of that motto before. Dont know where or when exactly. Maybe my grandfather. But Indeed: The blood of kings come from us; we have the ability to become true knights and kings. The world need true ones.

    Thanks!

  4. I am from Bolivia Potosi and i would like to contact anyone from spain with the same surname. I am so happy i have a family crest. I currently reside in London but i am missing Bolivia very much.

  5. I just wanted to let the other Manrique’s know that i am here. I live in Palm Beach Florida.
    Good luck to all of you and keep the name high and clean.

  6. Ah i always wondered about my family crest. i have seen many versions of the crest but its bassically always arround the same as this. i would love to get in contact with anyone from Spain or Peru with my last name. i think it would be really cool to meet up with distant Relatives.

  7. Another Manrique here from Arkansas. My family came to America from Guanajuato, Mexico and settled in Texas for the most part. I’ve heard of the family motto as being “Nos non venimos de reyes, que reyes vienen de nos.”(We don’t come from kings, kings come from us.)

    All of the Manrique family is descended from the Lara family of Spain. Our Manrique last name comes from Manrique Perez de Lara, son of, Pedro Gonsalez de Lara.

  8. Siempre supe que esta devisa era del apellido Manrique de Lara

  9. This Manrique here from Mexico City. I got the name from relatives in Guerrero. While there’s many ways to get a surname, I think ours is an uncommon one (both as a given and a family name), so there may be a chance some of us are related.

    I think it’d be nice to track where we come from…

  10. here from dallas, tx my family comes from Jalisco, Mexico but most migrated here and stays in dallas

  11. Manrique, originating from Guatemala City, Guatemala. Residing in Long Beach, CA. Great to see so many Manrique’s proud of their name.

  12. My Manrique comes from Villalobos, Spain (N of Madrid in Castilla), then to Mendoza and Buenos Aires Argentina, and my generation… Montreal, Quebec, Canada (born in Argentina, though).

  13. people, the last name manrique doesnt come from this, it is lara……..this is the crest of one of the families branches, descending from the person names Manrique De Lara…………and most laras dont come from that line because they mostly dies out in the 15th century……..

  14. I have always wondered all so but my grandfather had got rid of the de lara part from our last name so now we are just manrique. I love our crest.

  15. A message to Kim Manrique: Hi, my grandmother was born in Guanajuato and her name was Ramona Manrique I wonder if you Kim are my relative.

  16. My Father was born in the philippines mostly of my clan came from bataan philippines there is manrique in spain nd mexico where been colonize by the spaniard long time ago maybe my ancestors came from spain but my grandfather also born in the philippines

  18. This is really informative…i am always wondering my mother’s last name…we are from Albay,Philippines but I can’t trace her family roots although one of my uncle still have a blonde hair with light brown eyes….

    wish to meet more Manrique’s here….

  19. Hello I am currenty living in Houston, TX. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. My Father was born and raised in Tijuana, Mexico. I dont know anyone on my dad side I just know my grandmothers name was Felicia Manrique and she was from Guanajuato. She had three or two other sisters. I have always been curious to know my fathers side, just to know where my roots come from…any help will be appreciated.

  20. Hello fellow Manrique family! Nice to see more out there.

  21. MY FATHER CAME FROM SPAIN TO VENEZUELA. OUR FAMILY LIVES NOW IN FLORIDA, USA.
    THE ORIGINAL MOTTO IN OUR COAT OF ARMS ACCORDING TO MY FATHER WHO KNEW THIS WELL IS:
    ” NON TANTO DEBEMOS A REYES QUE REYES DEBEN A NOS ” WHICH MEANS ” THE KINGS OWE US MORE THAN WE OWE THE KINGS” . MANY MANRIQUES SERVED IN SPAINS ROYAL FOR COURTS FOR CENTURIES AND WERE GREAT POETS AND SCHOLARS AS WAS MY FATHER.

  22. unless your full last name reads Manrique de Lara, doesn’t mean you are directly linked to the Family.
    keep in mind that to come to the “new conitinent” back in the 1600 and 1700 you had to “rent” a noble name. that’s why there are derivatives like Manrique, Manriquez, Manrrique, Lara deLara Delara, etc..

    if your lastname is Manrique de Lara, and your family comes (NOW) from Mexico (or straight from Spain) then we’re directly linked.

    I would love to do a DNA test on all of us and try to trace it back to the 1100, which is when it really started! this is so cool!

  23. Dammmmm I’m the BEST MANRIQUE IN THE WORLD!!!!!

  24. Manriquez/Manrique is Gothic in origin and dates back to the 4th century AD. The name was gradually latinized over countless migrations over many centuries. The original name can be traced to Ostrogothic times, specifically to Ermanaric (Gothic language: Aír-manareiks), King of the Ostrogoths (350 AD). Meaning: Er (all) mana (men) ric (ruler, king, kingdom) or “Ruler of all Men”. The original spelling for Manriquez/Manrique in Gothic: Manareiks, Old English: Menric, Old Norse: Munrekkr, Latin: Manricus.

    Hope this helps.

  25. BTW, this does not mean people with Manrique/Manriquez as a last name and all its variations come necessarily from Gothic lineage. What I posted above was an etymological(word origin)study done by my great grandfather. He legally changed his last name back to the original Goth a long time ago. Also,since he was moving to northern Europe, it made sense. Just like someone long ago decided to change original Gothic to its Latin/Islamic variant Manrique/Manriquez, he decided to change it back to the original Gothic : Manreiks.

  26. A good place to search for your family’s birth, death, and other records, would be familysearch.org. It’s free and it has many records from Mexico and Spain dating back to the 1100′s and the early colonization of Mexico. Of course there are records from all over the world as well. Best part, it’s free to do a search. :-)

  27. This is so cool to know we’re we came from. I’m glad to see all these manrique’s around the world. Hellllooo everybody. I come from Guanajuato. That’s we’re we settled. :)
