The ancestors of the Blaecoe family may have been Viking settlers. Their surname comes from a place name of Norse origins, from when they lived in the counties of the Scottish/English Borderlands.

Blaecoe Early Origins



The surname Blaecoe was first found in Cumberland, where they held a family seat for many centuries, before the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



The New World was far from the oppressive regime of the old country. It was a place where there was more land than people and political and religious freedom were far easier to come by. Many Scots even got the chance to fight for their freedom in the American War of Independence. In recent years, interest in this heritage has been generated by Clan societies and regular highland games in North Ameri ca. An examination of early immigration and passenger lists has revealed many people bearing the Blaecoe name: D. Blanco who arrived in New Orleans in 1823; Richard Blencowe arrived in New York in 1830; Richard Blencowe settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1774; and many more..

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: Quorsum vivere mori
Motto Translation: Wherefore live to die.
