Migration of the Mantue family to the New World and Oceana
Settlers found farms all along the eastern part of what would become the United States and Canada. They provided a base and a backbone that would strengthen two great nations in the making. In the 20th century, the ancestors of those brave Scots have rediscovered their heritage through highland games and Scottish historical societies. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the Scottish name Mantue or a variant listed above, including: Luke Manson settled in Virginia in 1654; Barbara, Elizabeth and her mother Elizabeth, Janet, Margaret, and Thomas Manson all settled in Georgia in 1775.
The Mantue 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: Meae menor originis
Motto Translation: Mindful of my origin.
