The Irish surname Joint is originally a Huguenot name, from the Old French word "joint" meaning "united," or "joined."

Joint Early Origins



The surname Joint was first found in counties Limerick and Mayo. Most of the Huguenots arrived in Ireland via England, but there were five Huguenot regiments recruited directly from Holland by English King William of Orange, in his fight against the Irish forces of the deposed James II in 1690. Following William's victory at Boyne, most of these Huguenots settled in Ireland.

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: Nec Degenero
Motto Translation: I do not degenerate
