Australia Mollon migration to Australia +

Emigration to Australia followed the First Fleets of convicts, tradespeople and early settlers. Early immigrants include:

Mollon Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century
  • Naley Mollon, English convict from Yorkshire, who was transported aboard the "Adelaide" on April 16, 1855, settling in Western Australia [1]


The Mollon 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: Fidelis ad urnam
Motto Translation: Faithful to the tomb.
