The ancient Scottish name Angos is carried by the descendents of the Pictish people. It was a name for a person with great strength. The surname Angos was originally derived from the Gaelic word Aengus.

Angos Early Origins



The surname Angos was first found in Fife, where one of the first records of the name was Serlo de Anegus who witnessed a composition anent the tithes of Strathylif in 1229. Other early records include: Eva de Anegos of the county of Forfare who rendered homage in 1296 to King Edward I of England when he briefly conquered Scotland; William de Anegus who was a Scottish prisoner taken at Dunbar Castle in 1297; and Edward de Anegous and Laurence of Angus who were Scottish prisoners taken in the capture of Stirling Castle in 1305. "Michael of Angous, a Scotsman, in 1358, 'was foremost at the last capture of the town of Berwick by the Scots, and leapt over the walls the night it was taken' " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many Scots left their country to travel to the North American colonies in search of the freedom they could not find at home. Of those who survived the difficult voyage, many found the freedom they so desired. There they could choose their own beliefs and allegiances. Some became United Empire Loyalists and others fought in the American War of Independence. The Clan societies and highland games that have sprung up in the last century have allowed many of these disparate Scots to recover their collective national identity. A search of immigration and passenger ship lists revealed many early settlers bearing the Angos name: William Angus who came to Norfolk, Virginia in 1774; Daniel, Robert, William and John who all arrived in New York in 1775; Robert Angus who settled in New York in 1776.

Motto

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: Fortis est veritas
Motto Translation: Truth is strong.
