The distinguished surname Colegrave is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It is made up of two elements, both derived from Old English: "col," meaning "cold," and "graf," meaning "grove" or "thicket." It is likely that the original bearer of the name was someone from the north who lived near a large or well-known grove.

Colegrave Early Origins



The surname Colegrave was first found in Oxfordshire, where the name is thought to have first emerged. The earliest known bearer of the name was Geo Colgrave, who was married in Oxfordshire in 1566.

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: Fidei constants
Motto Translation: Steadfast in faith.
