Among the first immigrants of the name Bartar, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were : James Barter, who sailed to Virginia in 1655; William Barter to Virginia in 1774; and Barbara Barter to Philadelphia in 1804.

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: Semper metiora certans
Motto Translation: Forever striving for better things
