Migration of the Hempel family to the New World and Oceana


Many Scots were left with few options other than to leave their homeland for the colonies across the Atlantic.

The ancestors of all of these families have recently been able to rediscover their roots through Clan societies and other Scottish organizations. Among them:

The Hempel 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: Constanter ac non timide
Motto Translation: With constancy, not timidity.
