Migration of the Bridgemint family to the New World and Oceana

Migration of the Bridgemint family to the New World and Oceana


A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Jacob Bridgemen who settled in Virginia in 1654; John Bridgeman settled in Virginia in 1663; Walter Bridgeman arrived in Philadelphia in 1684; Thomas Bridgman settled in Virginia in 1654.

The Bridgemint Motto

The Bridgemint 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: Nec Temere Nec Timide
Motto Translation: Neither rashly nor timidly.
