Nevoy Early Origins



The surname Nevoy was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, where they held a family seat in the parish of Nevay, now called Essie. The name became interchangeably Nevay and Nevoy. The first on record was Adam of Neveth who perambulated (staked) his territories between the lands of the Abbey of Arbroath and Kinblemonth in 1219.

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: Marte et arte
Motto Translation: By valour and skill.
