Bittick Early Origins



The surname Bittick was first found in Holland, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in Overyssel, a province of Holland bordering Drenthe, Gelderland and Zutphen. The capital is Zwolle although Enschede is the largest town. Other towns to the south include Deventer, Hengelo, Kampen (noted for its fine town hall) and Almelo. The ancient family were the Counts Aldenburg Bentinck since 1732 but were a noble medieval family. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.

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: Craignez honte
Motto Translation: Fear shame.
