Seyrtays Early Origins



The surname Seyrtays was first found in Durham where they were an ancient family, Barons of the Palatinate, who took their name from the residence Super Tysam, Sur Tees, Upon the river Tees, their chief seat being Dinsdale. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
The principal male died out long ago, but younger branches of the family in recent generations have prospered. The Dinsdale property was lost but was repurchased in the late 1800s by the family.

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: Mao mori quam foedori
Motto Translation: Death before dishonor
