An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Nely surname is derived from the Old English word "mylen," and the Middle English "mille, or milne," all of which meant "mill." Thus the name was probably originally taken on by someone who owned or lived near a mill.

Nely Early Origins



The surname Nely was first found in Hampshire, where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Motto

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: Ex industria
Motto Translation: Through industry.
