Early Origins of the Gillick family


The surname Gillick was first found in Berkshire, where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The name Gotlac is on record in Cheshire the Domesday Book. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed.

The Gillick 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: Omnia bona desuper
Motto Translation: All good things are from above.
