Origins Available: English, Scottish


The surname Mitcholm is generally thought to be a local surname, derived from the place name Mitcham, County Surrey (today in the London Borough of Merton, London).

Mitcholm Early Origins



The surname Mitcholm was first found in Surrey at Mitcham, a parish in the union of Croydon, Second division of the hundred of Wallington. "This parish, which is situated on the road to Reigate, is divided into Upper Mitcham, formerly called Whitford or Waterford, and Lower Mitcham, anciently Michelham, or "the great dwelling," a name probably derived from the district having been at an early period the residence of persons of distinction."

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: Animi fortitudo
Motto Translation: The courage
