Liddle History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Liddle family


The surname Liddle was first found in Roxburghshire, where "this surname is derived from a geographical locality. 'of the Liddel.'" [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
"The family, in which there have been two peerages, were found among the merchants of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, some two centuries and a half since.

The name seems to have been derived from the Liddel, a river of Roxburghshire." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
"For the last two centuries the Liddells have frequently filled the offices of High Sheriff of the county and of mayor of Newcastle." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Guppy, Henry Brougham, Homes of Family Names in Great Britain. 1890. Print.

"There is, however, an old manor of Liddel in Cumberland from which the name may also have been derived. Persons named Lidel or Lidale appear in various records of the reigns of David II, Robert II, and Robert III, and James I, but none of them seem to have had lands in Liddesdale." [4]CITATION[CLOSE]
Black, George F., The Surnames of Scotland Their Origin, Meaning and History. New York: New York Public Library, 1946. Print. (ISBN 0-87104-172-3)

Another source claims the family "descended from Turgis Brundoz, a Norman, to whom Liddel or Lydale, on the borders of Scotland, was granted by Ranulph Meschin, temp. Henry I. It remained with his descendants till temp. John, when it passed away by an heiress to the house of De Stuteville, and then to that of Wake. The younger branch of the De Liddels settled in Scotland, where John de Lidel in 1292 held the revenues of Dundee in farm, while about the same time William de Lydel was seneschal of the Bishop of Glasgow, and led the forces of the see to the support of Robert Bruce." [5]CITATION[CLOSE]
The Norman People and Their Existing Descendants in the British Dominions and the United States Of America. Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing, 1975. Print. (ISBN 0-8063-0636-X)

One of the first records of the name was Richard de Lidel, who witnessed a charter of the church of Largs between 1202 and 1234. Later, Galfridus Liddal was listed in Roxburghshire in 1266.

The Liddle 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: Hinc odor et sanitas
Motto Translation: Hence fragrance and health.
