The name Lochet was brought to England in the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. Lochet is based on the given name Lockett. This name is patronymic in origin, in other words a surnames based on the first name of the original bearer's father. It means son of Lockett. Some historians have suggested that the name is a corruption of the name Lockhart, and is derived from the Old Norse Loki, meaning giant god, and hard, meaning strong, or that it derives from the Old French personal name Locard. However, Lockett is actually a diminutive form of the personal name Luke.

Lochet Early Origins



The surname Lochet was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat from very early times and were Lords of the manor of Clouterbrook, and were granted the lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. They were believed to have been related to the Earls of Chester.

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: Tenuimus
Motto Translation: We have held.
