Lussington History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Lussington come from when the family resided in the village of Lushington which was located in the county of Kent during the 12th century.


Early Origins of the Lussington family


The surname Lussington was first found in Kent where this surname is " local, 'of Lushington.' I cannot find the place. Manifestly of Kentish extraction." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

However, many of the records are quite late: Thomas Lushington, Kent, Register of the University of Oxford (1606-1607) and in 1687, George Walker and Ann Lushington were married in Kent. One branch of the family was found in the parish of Frinton in Essex. "The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the king's books at £7. 6. 8., and in the gift of the family of Lushington: the tithes have been commuted for £150, and the glebe comprises 27 acres." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Lussington Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Lussington has been recorded under many different variations, including Lushington, Lussintone, Lussington and others.

Migration of the Lussington family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Lussington or a variant listed above: William Lushington settled in Delaware in 1682.

The Lussington 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: Fides nudaque veritas
Motto Translation: Faith and the naked truth.
