Migration of the Horroelane family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Horroelane were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: 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 Horroelane 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.
