Bluitt History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancient name Bluitt is a Norman name that would have been developed in England after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. This name was a name given to a person with blue eyes, or who often wore blue clothing. The name stems from the Old French root bleuet which means blue.


Early Origins of the Bluitt family


The surname Bluitt was first found in Hampshire. One of the first records of the family was Robert Bloet (Bloett) (died 1123), an early English prelate. He was Bishop of Lincoln 1093-1123 and Lord Chancellor of England (1092-1093.) He claimed descent from a Norman noble family that held Ivry in Normandy. He accompanied William the Conqueror's son, William Rufus to England from Normandy.

The Bluitt 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: In Deo omnia
Motto Translation: In God are all things.
