lamly Early Origins



The surname lamly was first found in Durham where the first recorded ancestor was Liulph, who lived before the year 1080. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Shirley, Evelyn Philip, The Noble and Gentle Men of England; The Arms and Descents. Westminster: John Bower Nichols and Sons, 1866, Print.
Great Lumley is a village south east of Chester-le-Street, near Lumley Castle.

"On a fine eminence, sloping to the eastern bank of the river Wear, stands the stately castle of Lumley, erected in the reign of Edward I. by Robert de Lumley, ancestor of the Earl of Scarborough. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Ralph de Lumley, 1st Baron Lumley ( c. 1360-1400), an English peer held Lumley Castle, a quadrangular castle built in 1389 after returning from wars in Scotland. However, he was implicated in a plot to overthrow King Henry IV, imprisoned and later executed, forfeiting his lands to the Earl of Somerset. But by 1421, his grandson Thomas managed to reclaim Lumley Castle. Today the restored castle is reputed to be one of the most haunted places in County Durham with the ghost of the wife of Ralph de Lumley, 1st Baron Lumley repeatly floating up from the well to haunt the castle. It is claimed that she was thrown down the well by two priests for rejecting the Catholic faith.

East Murton in Durham played an important part in the early family lineage. "The manor and vill were the property of the family of Lumley from an early date to the reign of Elizabeth; the ancient tenure is uniformly described to be by homage and fealty, in free and common socage." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

The township of Waldridge in Durham was home to another branch of the family. "This place was long the estate of the Lumleys, of whom John, Lord Lumley, alienated it to the Smith family in 1607; it has since passed through various families." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

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: Murus aeneus conscientia sana
Motto Translation: A sound conscience is a wall of brass.
