Origins Available: Scottish-Alt, Scottish


The Caudwell family name is a habitational surname, derived from any of several places in Scotland and England, such as Caldwell in Renfrewshire. The place-names are derived from the Old English words "caeld," which means "cold," and "welle," which means "well."

Caudwell Early Origins



The surname Caudwell was first found in Renfrewshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Rinn Frił), a historic county of Scotland, today encompassing the Council Areas of Renfrew, East Renfrewshire, and Iverclyde, in the Strathclyde region of southwestern Scotland, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

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: In Deo Spes
Motto Translation: In God we trust
