An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Lushman surname is derived from the Old English word "laece" meaning "leech," and indicating "one who used leeches to let blood," that is, a blood-letter or physician.

Lushman Early Origins



The surname Lushman was first found in Stirlingshire where they held a family seat. The deep roots of the name appear to be in an area around Falkirk and there are many early recordings of the name although it is also recorded in Lanarkshire with the early spelling of Leechman was a sobriquet for a doctor. In fact, there is a claim on record of one Leechman who held many estates and who was Medicus Regis, the King's Leech, and, it is intimated, was the ancestor of the all the Leechmans. Oddly, in their later border relationships, the Leishmans became more oriented toward the clergy. William Leischman was prior of Fogo in 1465. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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: Industriae manus
Motto Translation: The gift of industry.
