The Miot surname is derived from the Middle English given name Myat, which is in turn derived from the Norman French given name Mihel.

Miot Early Origins



The surname Miot was first found in Southern England where bearers of the name are thought to have resided since the times of the Norman invasion.

Miot Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Myat, Myatt, Miatt, Myott, Miot and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlanti c. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Miot or a variant listed above: Joseph Myatt, who was on record in Albany, NY in 1728; Jane Miot, who arrived in Charles Town, SC in 1766; as well as Edward Myatt, his wife and their three children, who arrived at the port of Philadelphia in 1819..

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: J'y suis j'y reste
Motto Translation: I am here to stay.
