Spelling variations of this family name include: Shute, Chute, Chewte, Shutes and others.

First found in Wiltshire at Chute, a civil parish that includes the village of Upper Chute and the smaller settlements of Lower Chute, Chute Standen, Chute Cadley and Chute Forest. Alternatively the name could have originated from Shute, a parish, in the union of Axminster, hundred of Colyton in Devon. This place name dates back to c. 1200 when it was listed as Schieta and literally meant "the corner or angle of land." [1] The Old Shute House located nearby is now an impressive edifice that dates back to a simple building built in 1380. It is currently held by the National Trust.

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: Fortune de guerre
Motto Translation: The fortune of war.
