The rugged terrain and rich ancestry of Scotland forms the backdrop to the origins of Mouat family surname. In Scotland, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules during the late Middle Ages. The Mouat family lived in Angus, but the origin of the surname can be traced back to Normandy where it is thought to be derived from Mont Hault which means of "high mount."

Mouat Early Origins



The surname Mouat was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, where they were granted lands by King David I of Scotland.

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: Monte alto
Motto Translation: The high mountain
