The Mylner surname is derived from the Old English word "mylen," which means "mill." As such, it was likely originally an occupational name for a miller, or perhaps for someone who lived near a mill.

Mylner Early Origins



The surname Mylner was first found in Roxburghshire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Scotland to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

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: Tam arte quam marte
Motto Translation: As much by art as strength.
