It was in the Scottish/English Borderlands, in lands inhabited by the Strathclyde Britons that the Kerrick surname was first found. The name is thought to be a habitational name, taken on from the place named Carrick in Ayrshire. This place name comes from the Gaelic "carraig," meaning "rock."

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: Garde bien
Motto Translation: Watch well.
