are common among early Anglo-Saxon
names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Lussintome has been recorded under many different variations, including Lushington, Lussintone, Lussington and others.

Migration of the Lussintome 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 Lussintome or a variant listed above: William Lushington settled in Delaware in 1682.
The Lussintome 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.
