Moutrie History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

Early Origins of the Moutrie family

The surname Moutrie was first found in Berwickshire where they held a family seat on the English/Scottish border. After the Norman Conquest of England many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient no-man's land. Notable families such as the Percy, the Umfravilles and the Nevilles gathered many supporting clans around them. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. In that century, many of those clans drove their herds south, and they settled in Yorkshire and Lancashire. The name was first recorded in Moutreve where Adam swore fealty to Edward, the King of England, in 1292.
