The surname Hedrick was first found in Angus
(Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland
, and present day Council Area of Angus
, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire
, where they held a family seat
in their territories. The Pictish influence on Scottish history diminished after Kenneth Macalpine became King of all Scotland
. But those east coast families still played an important role in government and were more accessible to Government than their western highland counterparts. Later they held a family seat at Dunbar in the 15th century.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Hedderwick, Hetherwick, Heatherwick, Hedderick, Hethirwick, Hatherwick, Hatherick, Henderwick, Henderweck, Headrick, Hetherig and many more.

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:
Ne timeas recte faciendoMotto Translation:
Fear no when acting right.
