The surname Normington was originally a habitation name, that is, a surname derived from a place-name. The Normington family took the name of a town of Normanville in the French province of Normandy, prior to emigration to Britain.

Normington Early Origins



The surname Normington was first found in Berwickshire an ancient county of Scotland, presently part of the Scottish Borders Council Area, located in the eastern part of the Borders Region of Scotland, where they held a family seat being descended from John of Normanville in Yvetot in Normandy. Conjecturally, this John was granted lands by King David of Scotland while he was Earl of Huntingdon in England. John de Normanville followed the king and was granted his lands in Berwick in 1124.

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: Spem renovant alae
Motto Translation: Its wings renew its hope.
