Rusbridge Early Origins



The surname Rusbridge was first found in Suffolk where they held the village and lands of Rushbrooke, originally held by Arnulf from the Abbot of St. Edmunds, who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. The Abbot also held the other Rushbrooke near Bury St. Edmunds. "Rushbrooke Hall, anciently the seat of the Jermyns, afterwards of the Davers family, and now of Robert Rushbrooke, Esq., is a handsome mansion, built in the reign of Elizabeth, and situated in an extensive park."

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: Fluminis ritu ferimur
Motto Translation: We rush on like a brook.
