Early Origins of the Gutch family
The surname Gutch was first found in Roxburghshire
. One of the first records of the name was found in France alluding to its Norman heritage: Martin Gouge (c.
1360-1444), a French chancellor. However, some of the family were found further south at Billesley in Warwickshire
in early times. "The estate was afterwards possessed by Bishop Sherlock, through whose sister, who married Sir Thomas Gooch (1674-1754), Bishop of Ely, it passed into the Gooch family." CITATION[CLOSE]

The Gutch 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: Audaces juvat
Motto Translation: Fortune favours the bold.
