First found in Roxburghshire, Scotland where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say, the 11th century. One of the first on record was Adam of Roxburgh in 1153, who must have been close to the royal court in that he witnessed a charter by King David to Cambuskenneth Abbey. Similarly, Richard Roxburgh witnessed grants made by Richard, Bishop of St. Andrews from 1163 onward. [1] Roxby is a parish in Lincolnshire and a chapelry in Yorkshire. The Yorkshire family originally spelt their name Rooksby and sometimes as Rokeby. [2]

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: Tam audax quam fidelis
Motto Translation: I am as faithful as I am strong
