An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Halsey come from when the family resided in the county of Devon in an area that was near the hazel-trees. Halsey is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree.

Halsey Early Origins



The surname Halsey was first found in Surrey where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Halsey or a variant listed above:

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: Nescit vox missa reverti
Motto Translation: When a word is once spoken it cannot be recalled.
