Moltint is a name that first reached England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Moltint family lived in Devon. The name, however, is a reference to the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, Meules in Calvados, in the arrondisement of Lisieux in the canton of Orbec, Normandy.

Moltint Early Origins



The surname Moltint was first found in Devon where they were under tenants of Baldwin FitzGilbert, Sheriff of Devon. Typical of the family's early benevolence, the parish of Skirbeck in Lincolnshire was the site of an early hospital. "An hospital for ten persons, founded here in honour of St. Leonard, was given in 1230 by Sir Thomas Multon, Knt., to the Knights Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem, who dedicated it anew to St. John the Baptist. In the time of Edward II., its revenue was sufficient for the maintenance of four priests, of twenty people in the infirmary, and for the daily relief of forty more at the gate." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Moltint Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Moltint has been recorded under many different variations, including Moulson, Moulton, Molson, Molton and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Moltints were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Thomas Moulston, who arrived in Virginia in 1623; Thomas Moulton, who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1630 with his wife Jane; John Moulton, who settled in New England in 1637 with his wife and five children.

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: Regi fidelis
Motto Translation: Faithful to the king.
