Early Origins of the Dishingston family


The surname Dishingston was first found in Northumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Dissington in that shire. They are descended from Dica, and Dicatun which means "Dica's farm." Dissington Hall in North Dissington is a privately owned country mansion which for centuries has been in the hands of the Delaval family. One branch of the family was found at Ashington, again in Northumberland. "The persons who are first named in the records as connected with the property here, are the Morwicks, Lumleys, and Fitzhughs; the family of Essendon (the modern Ashington) are mentioned as lords of the manor at the close of the 13th century."

The Dishingston 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: Unica spes mea Christus
Motto Translation: Christ is my only hope.
