The ancestors of the name Fauls come from the ancient Scottish tribe known as the Dalriadans. They lived along the rugged west coast of Scotland and on the Hebrides islands and used the name to indicate a person who lived in the shires of Ayr, Renfrew, Lanark, and Perth, (now part of the Strathclyde region), and there were also lands of East and West Faulds in the lordship of Dudop or Dudhope near Dundee. The surname Faulds is also derived from the Old English word falod, or fold, which indicates that the original bearer of this surname lived by or near an enclosure where cattle were kept. Faulds was also an occupational name for one who worked at the sheep-fold, or for a person who was a shepherd. There is also a place-name Folds in an ancient parish in Bolton, county Lancashire, England.

Fauls Early Origins



The surname Fauls 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 they held a family seat from very ancient times.

The Great Migration



Settlers from Scotland put down roots in communities all along the east coast of North America. Some moved north from the American colonies to Canada as United Empire Loyalists during the American War of Independence. As Clan societies and highland games started in North America in the 20th century many Scots rediscovered parts of their heritage. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Fauls were among those contributors:

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: Mente manuque praesto
Motto Translation: Ready with heart and hand.
