The ancestors of the name Horningoit date back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from their residence in village of Horninghold in the county of Leicestershire.

The Great Migration

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 Horningoits to arrive on North American shores: 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
