An examination of immigration and passenger lists revealed many bearing the name Nangul: David and Julianna Nagle settled with their six children in Prescott Ontario Canada in 1825; David, Francis, Henry, James, Jeremiah, John, Michael, Patrick, Richard, Thomas, and William Nagle all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860.

The Nangul 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: Non vox sed votum
Motto Translation: Not in voice but a wish.
