Penycach Early Origins



The surname Penycach was first found in Midlothian, where the family claim descent from the barony Penicuik. "The present name of this place is supposed to be derived from a British or Gaelic word signifying "Cuckoo's hill;" and as several places in the neighbourhood also received their epithets from this bird, it is probable that it was a frequent visitor in these quarters. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
New Hall (New-Hall) lies on the border of a desolate moor, and was passed from the families of Crichtoune, Penicuick, and Oliphant. "The first of the family in record is William de Penycook, one of the persons directed to fix the extent of the lands of Lethenhop in the reign of Alexander II." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

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: Ut resurgam
Motto Translation: That I may rise again.
