An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancestors of the name Hiott date back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from their residence in the village of Ayott in the county of Hertfordshire. The surname Hiott can be translated as at the high-gate, a gate that led into a protected enclosure.

Hiott Early Origins



The surname Hiott was first found in Hertfordshire at Ayot(t), of which there are two villages: Ayot(t) St. Lawrence, a parish, in the union of Welwyn, hundred of Broadwater; and Ayot(t) St. Peter, a parish, in the union of Welwyn, hundred of Broadwater. The Ayot(t) St. Lawrence "parish during the heptarchy, formed part of the possessions of the last of the Saxon monarchs; and a spot in the immediate vicinity, still called Dane End, commemorates a signal defeat of the Danes by King Ethelwulph."

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Hiotts to arrive on North American shores: Michael Huyet, who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1749; Jane Hyatt settled in Virginia in 1663; Samuel Hyatt settled in Barbados in 1680 with his wife and servants.

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: Fac et spera
Motto Translation: Do and hope.
