An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


As early as c. 1172, this name was used by judicial officers or judges and it is from this source the surname was more than likely derived. While there may have been Norman roots at La Justice in Normandy, the name was more likely an occupational name for someone who held the office of "the justice," in other words a judge.

Jewson Early Origins



The surname Jewson was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland, and Angus where one of the first records of the name was Patrick Justyce as a tenant of the mill at Kelso in 1472. Just two years later, Patrick Justice, a priest who witnessed an instrument of sasine in this shire in 1474. As the forename Patrick was not very popular at this time, these two references may be the same person. The lands of James Justeis and Thomas Justeis are mentioned in Scone in 1491.

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: Non sine causa
Motto Translation: Not without a cause.
