Gerrick Early Origins



The surname Gerrick was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland, where they held a family seat in their territories. The Pictish influence on Scottish history diminished after Kenneth Macalpine became King of all Scotland. But those east coast families still played an important role in government and were more accessible to Government than their western highland counterparts. The family name became associated as a sept of the Clan Gordon. Allegiances were important to Scottish middle age survival. Later in 1264 Andrew Garuiach was Sheriff of Aberdeen. Adam Garioch rendered homage to King Edward 1st in his brief conquest of Scotland in 1296 as well as Andrew and Sir John.

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: Concussus surgo
Motto Translation: Though shaken, I rise.
