Kinglyke History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Kinglyke is a name whose ancestors lived among the Picts, a tribe in ancient Scotland.

Early Origins of the Kinglyke family

Migration of the Kinglyke family to the New World and Oceana


The expense of the crossing to the North American colonies seemed small beside the difficulties of remaining in Scotland. It was a long and hard trip, but at its end lay the reward of freedom. Some Scots remained faithful to England and called themselves United Empire Loyalists, while others fought in the American War of Independence. Much of this lost Scottish heritage has been recovered in the last century through Clan societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important, early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Kinglyke: Patrick Kinloch, who came to Boston in 1687; Alexander Kinloch, who settled in Carolina in 1703; Cleland Kinloch, who came to South Carolina in 1799; James Kinloch, who settled in South Carolina in 1703.

The Kinglyke 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 degener
Motto Translation: Not degenerated
