Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Pierre Berthiaume, son of Pierre Berthiaume and Catherine Fauteux who married Marie Pépin, daughter of Robert and Isabelle Royer in 1725; Noel Berthiaume who married Marie-Joseph Augéard in 1725.
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: Commilitoni victor caesar
Motto Translation: Comrade with the victors
