The name Lussintom is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived in the village of Lushington which was located in the county of Kent during the 12th century.

Lussintom Early Origins



The surname Lussintom was first found in Kent where this surname is " local, 'of Lushington.' I cannot find the place. Manifestly of Kentish extraction." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
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]

Lussintom Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Lussintom are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Lussintom include: Lushington, Lussintone, Lussington and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Lussintom or a variant listed above: William Lushington settled in Delaware in 1682.

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