Multiple Origins for the Surname Rogel


Scottish


Rogel Early Origins



The surname Rogel was first found in Cumberland, where they held a family seat from ancient times and were the Lords of the manor of Roskell. Since Cumberland was not included in the Domesday Book taken in 1086, and initiated by Duke William of Normandy after the conquest of England in 1066, the records of this northern county are scarce, and it may be assumed that their estates were reasonably well scattered over that shire.

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: Ros coeli
Motto Translation: A shower from heaven.
