Migration of the Nudegate family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Nudegates to arrive in North America: John Newgate (also Newdegate) settled in Boston in 1635; Jane Newdigate, who settled in Virginia in 1664; and Nathaniel Newdigate, who arrived in Rhode Island in 1750..
The Nudegate 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: Confide recte agens
Motto Translation: Trust in fair dealing.
