The Great Migration



The cruelties suffered under the new government forced many to leave their ancient homeland for the freedom of the North American colonies.

These hardy settlers gave their strength and perseverance to the young nations that would become the United States and Canada. Immigration and passenger lists have shown many early immigrants bearing the name Baskint: William Baskins who settled in Virginia in 1740; William Baskins settled in Augusta county 1762; Thomas Baskin settled in Delaware in 1785.

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: Armis et diligentia
Motto Translation: By arms and diligence.
