Origins Available: English-Alt, English


The name Hairies has a history dating as far back as the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 when the culture from which this family sprang arrived on British soil. It was a name for a person who was the son of the ruler of the property upon which he lived. Initially, le Herisse, the name came to England with the Norman Conquest, and is of Old French derivation. Another derivation, which is probably more common shows that the name is a version of the Old English given name Harry. Although both derivations are valid time has confused them and historians now disagree on which is appropriate in a given situation.

Hairies Early Origins



The surname Hairies was first found in Derbyshire where they had been granted lands by William the Conqueror for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

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: Fidelitas et liberalitas
Motto Translation: Fidelity, and generosity
