Scotland, with its skirl of bagpipes and colorful tartans is the homeland of the noble surname Lora. In Scotland, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate.The Lora family originally lived in the French province of Lorraine, before moving to Scotland, where the name was passed down through many generations.

Lora Early Origins



The surname Lora was first found in Northumberland, where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Kirk Hall some say, from the time of the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in 1066 A.D. These estates were apparently obtained by the marriage of the Knight of Loraine to the del Strother heiress. However, it was a common practice of the powerful Border Clans to have territories on both sides of the border and such was the case with the Loraines. They were also seated in Roxburghshire in the eastern marches of Scotland. Roger Loraine or Loren was the first of the name in Scotland about the year 1200. This Roger was on an enquiry concerning piracy in the Irish Sea.

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: Lauro resurgo
Motto Translation: I rise again with laurel.
