Raynham Early Origins



The surname Raynham was first found in Forfarshire part of the Tayside region of North Eastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, where they held a family seat. It is claimed that they were from Wrangholm, an old village near Melrose Abbey and that the village was the ancient birth place of St.Cuthbert. Both the village and the shrine are now ploughed under and all that remains is a field.

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: Hyeme ex Superata
Motto Translation: When the Winter is Over.
