Before that, words and names were spelled according to sound, and, therefore, often appeared under several different spelling variations in a single document. Briklebank has been spelled Brocklebank, Bricklebank and others.

Migration of the Briklebank family to the New World and Oceana


The persecution faced in their homeland left many Scots with little to do but sail for the colonies of North America. There they found land, freedom, opportunity, and nations in the making. They fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence, or traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In both cases, they made enormous contributions to the formation of those great nations. Among them: John Brocklebank who settled in Massachusetts in 1630; Jonathan Brocklebank settled in New England in 1736; Samuel Brocklebank settled in Massachusetts in 1630.

The Briklebank 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: Pro patria
Motto Translation: For my country.
