The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Brinson were among those contributors:

Brinson Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Daniel Brinson, who landed in New Jersey in 1677

Brinson Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • John Brinson, who arrived in Virginia in 1713

Brinson Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century

  • Thomas Brinson, aged 19, a farm labourer, arrived in Hawkes Bay aboard the ship "Clarence" in 1875

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: Lux et Salus
Motto Translation: Light and safety.
