The Curcey surname is derived from the place named Courcy in Normandy, France.

Curcey Early Origins



The surname Curcey was first found in Stoke County, Somerset, one of the baronies received by Richard de Courcy, who accompanied William, Duke of Normandy, on his conquest of England, and was present at the decisive battle of Hastings, 14 Oct. 1066. He was also given the lordships of Newentam, Seckenden, and Foxcote, in Oxfordshire. There is a record of Richard de Curci in the Domesday Book of 1086, in Oxfordshire.

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: Vincit omnia veritas
Motto Translation: Truth conquers all things.
