Early Origins of the Shotworth family

The surname Shotworth was first found in Lancashire, at Shuttleworth, now a hamlet at the northeastern extremity of the Metropolitan Borough of Bury, in Greater Manchester.

The Shotworth 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.
