An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Knoche surname comes from the Old English word "cnocc," which meant a round topped hill. The surname may have been taken on by someone who lived at such a place, or may have come from one of several places called Knock, in Scotland and Northern England.

Knoche Early Origins



The surname Knoche was first found in Renfrewshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

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: Moveo et proficior
Motto Translation: I proceed and am more prosperous.
