The surname lavery is derived from the patronymic Irish Gaelic name "O Labhradha," where "Labraidh" means "spokesman."


Early Origins of the lavery family


The surname lavery was first found in north-east Ulster (Irish: Ulaidh), where the sept originated. In the Middle Ages, their territory was around Moira in County Down.

The lavery 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: Virtus semper viridis
Motto Translation: Virtue is always flourishing.
