Rintoul Early Origins



The surname Rintoul was first found in Kinross-shire, where they held a family seat in the lands of Rintoul in the parish of Orwell on the banks of beautiful Loch Leven. Their records on these estates go back to about 1300 which denies the family tradition that they may be of Huguenot origin. Historians have linked the name to the Dutch Rintel which would make the family of Flemish origin, a more reasonable claim given the time frame in Scottish settlements, but still most unlikely.

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: Facta non verba
Motto Translation: Deeds not words.
