The ancestry of the name Kirysche dates from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from when the family lived in the village of Kerridge found in the parish of Prestbury in the county of Cheshire.

Kirysche Early Origins



The surname Kirysche was first found in Cheshire, in the village of Kerridge. The place name was derived from "key ridge." However, we must look to Suffolk for the earliest record of the family as John Kerrage was registered there in 1297. Two years later, the family "occurs in the records of Dunwich for 1299."

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Kirysche, or a variant listed above: John Kerridge, who was living in Haldimand County, Ontario in 1877; and Frederick John Kerridge, who was on record in Minneapolis in 1875.

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.
