JARDINE Family HistoryThis interesting name is of Old French origin. Introduced into both England and Scotland after the famous Conquest of England in 1066, it can be either habitational or occupational. In both cases it is derived from the French "jardin", meaning a garden. As a topographical name it denoted residence by or near a garden, and as an occupational name, an owner or worker at such a place. For many centuries the duty of the gardener was to be a cultivator of herbs, spices and vegetables, not until the 17th century was time gioven to ornamental lawns and flower beds as we know them today...
