Origins Available: English-Alt, English


The surname is one of the many names that the Normans brought with them when they conquered England in 1066. The Bellmont family lived in Dorset and Gloucestershire. The geographical derivation of the name, however, does not stem from these locations, but relates to numerous areas in France, which are so named.

Bellmont Early Origins



The surname Bellmont was first found in Dorset and Gloucestershire, where they had been granted lands by King William after the Norman Conquest in 1066.

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: Fide sed cui vide
Motto Translation: Trust, but be careful whom.
