Enderlin Heraldry

     This is a compilation I have been working on for many years.  Each of these Coats of Arms (Wappen in German) was awarded to an individual... not a family.  None of our known Enderlin relatives were members of the nobility, but there were other families in Baden, Prussia, Alsace and Switzerland who were.  There are undoubtedly other Enderlin Coats of Arms out there.  As I find them, I will add them to this site. -- Dean Enderlin

Notes:
This is an example of the Arms of the Enderlin/Enderli (von Montzwick) family who lived in Maienfield (Mayenfeld), Canton Graubünden, Switzerland in the 16th and 17th Centuries.  This coat of arms was awarded by Archduke Maximillian of Tirol in Innsbruck on 25 April 1609.  It was received by the brothers Ulrich and Andreas Enderli and their cousins Andreas, Johannes and Türing (Thüring) Enderli von Montzwick, whose ancestors (the Landeshauptmman-, Stadtvogt-, and Potesten-Amt of Mayenfeld) had worn it.  Note: Andreas Enderlin (the cousin named above) was “Podesta” (mayor) of Tirano in northern Italy.  He was shot in the hostelry of Tirano, mutilated and thrown into the Adda River during the Valtellina Massacre of 18-19 July 1620.
