Note: Several other hymn books have had similar names. 'Hymns Ancient and Modern' was a hymnal in common use within the Church of England. Over the years it has grown into a large family of hymnals. The idea for the hymn book first came about in 1858 when two clergymen met on a train. They discussed the need for a standardisation of the hymn books in use throughout England and so the idea was born.

They founded a board, called the Proprietors, who oversaw both the publication of the hymnal and the donation of the profits to appropriate charities, or to subsidise less wealthy parishes for the cost of the books. The first edition was published in 1861 by Novello and Co. So was the 1868 Appendix but negotiations were taking place which resulted in the whole publishing project being placed in the hands of William Clowes and Son later that same year. It was revised in 1875 by William Henry Monk to produce the second edition to which, fourteen years later in 1889, Charles Steggall added several supplementary hymns.

In 1904 the new and revised edition was published, edited by Bertram Luard-Selby. Unfortunately people complained about the difference between this and its predecessors to such an extent that, in 1906, C. Steggall's edition was republished as the old complete edition. Further editions followed in 1916, 1922, 1950, 1983 and 2000.

Ira Sankey's 'Hallowed Hymns New and Old' was published in 1908 (Chicago, Illinois: The Biglow & Main Co.)

Early Origins of the Sankey family

Sankey Songbook Pdf

The surname Sankey was first found in Lancashire where the Sankeys descend from a family of considerable antiquity. The first on record is Galdridus de Sankey, who held the lands of Sankey Manga and Sankey Parva in the reign of King John. Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.'>[1] Later, William de Sankey was rector of the church of St. Elphin, Warrington, Lancashire from 1298 to 1299. [2]

'The manor of Little Sankey was granted by Pain de Vilers, lord of Warrington, to Gerard de Sankey the carpenter, in the early part of the twelfth century. It was assessed as one plough-land and held by knight's service. In 1212 Robert son of Thomas was holding it; and thirty years later Robert de Samlesbury was the tenant. He or his descendants probably adopted the local surname; but little or nothing is known of the place until the end of the fifteenth century, when Randle, son of Randle Sankey, did homage and paid 10s. as his relief for one plough-land in Little Sankey. Edward Sankey died 1 December, 1602, holding the tenth part of a knight's fee in Little Sankey, Warrington, and Great Sankey; Thomas, his son and heir, was under sixteen years of age. Nothing further seems to be known of the family or manor.' [2]

Sankey Spelling Variations

The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Sankey has been recorded under many different variations, including Sankey, Sanky and others.

The Sankey Motto +

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Sancta Clavis Coeli Fides
Motto Translation: Faith is the Sacred Key to Heaven.
