Early immigrants bearing the Horeelant surname or a spelling variation of the name include : George Harland who settled in Virginia in 1642; William Harland arrived in Fort Cumberland Nova Scotia in 1774; John, Patrick, Jacob Hoar arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1840 and 1860.
The Horeelant 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: Per juga per fluvius
Motto Translation: Through precipices and torrents.
