McTurk Early Origins



The surname McTurk was first found in Dumfriesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhn Phris), a Southern area, bordering on England that today forms part of the Dumfries and Galloway Council Area, where they held a family seat on the English/Scottish border. After the Norman Conquest of England many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient but turbulent no-man's land where the persecuted took haven. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. The name was first recorded in Muchrum in 1538 when John McTurk held estates. Captain MacTurk is a fictional character in Sir Walter Scott's 19th century novel Saint Ronan's Well published in 1823 and Mr. MacTurk appears in the novel Shirley, by Charlotte Bronte.

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: Pace vel bello
Motto Translation: In peace or war
