Shank Genealogy & History

Shank stems from Old English sceanca, meaning shinbone; thus the name means someone with long legs or a long walk. The family motto is I hope and the coat of arms is a purple shield with a band of gold across the middle third, with three gold shells-two above and one below. Shank family history mentions the first known recording as Lefwine Scahches in the Records of the Abbey of Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England, in 1095. Some members of Shank genealogy are saxophonist and flautist Clifford (Bud) Everett Shank Jr. and WWI poet Taylor Bryan Shank.
