The name Lumber is of Anglo-Saxon origin. It was name for a gentle-hearted person. The surname Lumber originally derived from a broad and miscellaneous class of surnames. As a nickname surname it could refer either directly or indirectly to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character. Another source claims that "the name was probably taken from the sign of a lamb at an inn, the young of the sheep kind." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Arthur, William , An Etymological Dictionary of Family and Christian Names. London: 1857. Print
And yet another source claims that the name was a baptismal name as in " 'the son of Lambert,' from Lamb the nickname." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

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: Virtute et fide
Motto Translation: By valour and faith.
