Murcell History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Murcell family


The surname Murcell was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland, where they held a family seat from ancient times. The name would seem to have no connection with either Morrison or Murray, and the development of the family seems to have taken place in the 14th century in the county of Aberdeen.

The Murcell 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: Mediocriter
Motto Translation: With moderation.
