Where did the English Bluett family come from? What is the English Bluett family crest and coat of arms? When did the Bluett family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Bluett family history?The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 brought many new words to England from which surnames were formed. Bluett was one of these new Norman names. It was specifically tailored to its first bearer, who was a person with blue eyes, or who often wore blue clothing. The name stems from the Old French root bleuet which means blue.
A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Blewett, Blewitt, Bluet, Bluat, Bloet, Blouet, Blewit, Blewet and many more.

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: In Deo omnia
Motto Translation: In God are all things.
