Early Origins of the Muccleston family

The surname Muccleston was first found in Shropshire, anciently known as Salop, where they were conjecturally descended from one Ethelred Muckle. One of the earliest records was Roger of Mokleston, Lord of the Manor of Muckleston, whose lands were seized by the Earl of Arundel for outlawry. Hoskyn Muccleston succeeded him in 1345. Two records of the place Muckleston were found: first as a hamlet in the parish of Shawbury and secondly as a parish in the union of Market Drayton.

Lodowicke Muggleton (1609-1698), the English religious thinker and founder or Muggletonianism, a small Protestant sect he founded c. 1651, hailed from London.

The Muccleston 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: Fideliter
Motto Translation: Faithfully. on Facebook
