Rosskell Early Origins



The surname Rosskell was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced when Swein, son of Roskil assumed the name for the first time as a surname in Yorkshire. They also held in Cumberland. In the year 1273 when Hugh and Walter of Rasegill held estates on the border of Yorkshire in North Lncashire. The name was originally Rossgill.

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
