The Great Migration



The New World beckoned as many of the settlers in Ireland, known as the Scotch/Irish, became disenchanted. They sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlanti c. Some called them, less romantically, the "coffin ships." Amongst the early settlers who could be considered kinsmen of the Johnstolm family, or who bore a variation of the surname Johnstolm were Archibald Johnston settled in Barbados with his two sons and servants in 1680; George Johnston settled in New England in 1685; Alexander, Arthur, Charles, Cunningham, David, Francis, George, Henry, John, Joseph, Nathan, Robert, Thomas, and William Johnston, all arrived in Philadelphia between 1800 and 1865.

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: Nunquam non paratus
Motto Translation: Never unprepared.
