The De boyville surname in Scotland is of Norman origin, thought to have derived from one of the place names such as Boyville, Boeville, and Beauville.

De boyville Early Origins



The surname De boyville was first found in Ayrshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Inbhir Àir), formerly a county in the southwestern Strathclyde region of Scotland, that today makes up the Council Areas of South, East, and North Ayrshire, where the de Boyvilles are said to have settled in Kelburn by 1140. The first record found of the name in Scotland is of a David de Boivil witnessing a charter as early as 1164.

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: Dominus provedebit
Motto Translation: God will provide
