Beattie occurred in many references, and spelling variations of the name found included Beattie, Beatty, Beaty, Beatie, Betay, Bety and others.

Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of illness and the elements, were buried at sea. In North America, early immigrants bearing the family name Beattie, or a spelling variation of the surname include:
Beattie Settlers in the United States in the 18th Century
Beattie Settlers in the United States in the 19th Century
Beattie Settlers in the United States in the 20th Century
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: Lumen coeleste sequamur
Motto Translation: May we follow heavenly inspiration.
The Beattie Family Crest was acquired from the Houseofnames.com archives. The Beattie Family Crest was drawn according to heraldic standards based on published blazons. We generally include the oldest published family crest once associated with each surname.
