De coursey History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the De coursey family

The surname De coursey was first found in île-de-France, where the family has been a prominent family for centuries, and held a family seat with lands and manor. The family were well established in the region of Paris and several members of the family distinguished themselves through their contributions toward the community in which they lived and were rewarded with lands, titles and letters patent confirming their nobility. They branched north to Normandy in the arrondisement of Falaise at Coulliboeuf.

Nicolas Courcy, son of Nicolas and Marie-Anne-Helene, travelled from Normandy to Canada in the 17th century. After settling in Quebec he married Louise-Geneviève Dube on 11th November 1749. [1]

The De coursey 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.
