Blaikcot Early Origins



The surname Blaikcot was first found in Northumberland at Wylam, a township, in the parish of Ovingham, union of Hexham, E. division of Tindale ward. "The manor was an appurtenance to the monastery of Tynemouth, and was granted by the crown to a branch of the Fenwick family, of Fenwick Tower, from whom it passed to the Blacketts, in the reign of Charles II. It is now the property of Christopher Blackett, Esq., of Wylam House." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Again in Northumberland, but this time in West Matfen, we found Matfen Hall, "the beautiful seat of Sir Edward Blackett, Bart., a fine eminence sheltered by extensive woods." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlanti c. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of illness and the elements, were buried at sea. In North America, early immigrants bearing the family name Blaikcot, or a spelling variation of the surname include: William Blackhead who settled in Virginia in 1734; Tobiah Blackett settled in Carolina in 1774; Tym Blackett settled in Virginia in 1635; Joshua Blackett settled in Maryland in 1739..

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: Nous travaillerons en L'esperance
Motto Translation: We will labor in hope.
