Lussintone is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon
tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Lussintone family once lived in the village of Lushington which was located in the county of Kent
during the 12th century.

Lussintone Spelling Variations
Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations
were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Lussintone family name include Lushington, Lussintone, Lussington and others.

Migration of the Lussintone family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland
, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Lussintone surname or a spelling variation of the name include: William Lushington settled in Delaware in 1682.
The Lussintone 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.
