Bowthbay Early Origins



The surname Bowthbay was first found in Lincolnshire, at Boothby, a parish, in the Higher division of the wapentake of Boothby-Graffo, parts of Kesteven. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Boothby-Pagnell is nearby. The family is "a younger branch of the Barons de Tateshall, descended from Eudo, a foreign noble, living 1086. Boothby was held 13th cent. by Robert de Tateshall, the ancestor of this family Sir Alexander de Boothby had a writ of summons, 1296, to march against the Scots. From this family descend the Baronets Boothby." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
The Norman People and Their Existing Descendants in the British Dominions and the United States Of America. Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing, 1975. Print. (ISBN 0-8063-0636-X)

The date 1296 is very significant as this was the year that King Edward I (nicknamed the Hammer of the Scots) conquered Scotland. Like many other nobles of the time, the aforementioned Sir Alexander de Boothby was recruited for his quest.

About the same time, Thomas de Botheby was listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 as residing in Lincolnshire. Later, John de Botheby, was rector of Ryton, County Durham in 1312 and Henry Boothby was vicar of Stow-Bardolph, Norfolk in 1497. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

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: Mors Christi mors mortis mihi
Motto Translation: Christís death is to me the death of death.
