The surname Brocklehust is generally thought to be of toponymic origin, from a place name located near Accrington, Lancashire. The name is made up of three elements "brock," or "broc" in Middle English, which means "badger," "le," which is most likely a reduction of "hole" or "hollow," and "hurst," or "hyrst" in Old English which denotes a wooded hill. Thus together, this name describes some sort of clearing in the woods, where badgers lived.

The Brocklehust 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: Veritas me dirigit
Motto Translation: Let the Truth Guide Me
