Brush Early Origins



The surname Brush was first found in Suffolk, where the name first appeared in the early 14th century and remained there for centuries to come. Many early surnames were representative of the profession to which the first bearer belonged. The word "brush" was the same in middle English as it is today, and the name was probably first given to a man who manufactured brushes.

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: Fuimus
Motto Translation: God and my country.
