The Hornigoit name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in village of Horninghold in the county of Leicestershire.

Hornigoit Early Origins



The surname Hornigoit was first found in Leicestershire, where the name is associated with the parish of Horninghold, in the union of Uppingham, hundred of Gartree. Originally listed as Horniwale in the Domesday Book of 1086, it was the property of Robert de Tosny at that time. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Hornigoit were among those contributors: William and Katherine Horniolde, who sailed to Barbados in 1678; Thomas Honihold to Barbados in 1679; and William Horniold to Barbados in 1680.

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: Fidem tene
Motto Translation: Keep the faith
