Early Origins of the Satchwell family
The surname Satchwell was first found in Derbyshire
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor of Hopwell. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book
in 1086, a survey initiated by Duke William of Normandy
after his conquest of England
at Hastings in 1066 A.D., the village of Hopwell was held by Ralph Fitzhubert from his overlord, the Bishop of Chester. Hopwell consisted of a village, a mill, 2 churches and a fishery. Conjecturally, it was from this source the Sechevarals are originated.

The Satchwell 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: En bon foy
Motto Translation: In good faith.
