Harbison Early Origins



The surname Harbison was first found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, where they held a family seat. In the 11th and 12th century, Scotland was composed of several elements, the best known being the ancient Highland Clans which were both Dalriadan and Pictish in origin, possibly Viking. To the south, the lowland clans, and the Border Clans, and other distinguished families were more Norman and northern English. To the west there was a large Irish influence amongst the Gallowegians. This name first emerged in Glasgow and was descended from the Herberts. Archibald Herbertson was a businessman in Glasgow in 1525.

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: Deus spes mea
Motto Translation: God is my hope
