Shettlesworth Early Origins



The surname Shettlesworth was first found in Lancashire, at Shuttleworth, now a hamlet at the northeastern extremity of the Metropolitan Borough of Bury, in Greater Manchester. The place name Shuttleworth derives from the Old English words "scyttels" + "worth" and literally means "gated enclosure." Early spellings of the hamlet included Suttelsworth in 1227 and Shuttelesworthe in 1296.

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: Utile dulce
Motto Translation: The useful with the agreeable.
