The name Halsy is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the county of Devon in an area that was near the hazel-trees. Halsy 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.

Halsy Early Origins



The surname Halsy 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.

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.
