Bolivar History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
Early Origins of the Bolivar family
The surname Bolivar was first found in Provence, where the family has been formerly seated.
There are nearly 30 municipalities called Beaulieu in the Alpes-Maritimes region of the French Riviera. It is assumed by some sources that the name derives from the beauty of the place that it comes from. Originally, "beaulieu" was another word used for "banlieu", or in English, "suburban". 
Pierre Beaulieu, born in 1649, son of Jean and Françoise, travelled from France to Canada in the 17th century. He married Marie Gobeil in Quebec on 13th July 1676. Pierre passed away on 25th April 1710 and was buried at Rivière-Ouelle, Quebec.

The Bolivar 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: Impavidum ferient ruinae
Motto Translation: Dangers shall strike me unappalled
