Sievewright Early Origins



The surname Sievewright was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, where they held a family seat at Brechin, a borough near Montrose in that shire. This name is one of the few surnames of Scotland which can truly claim to be a trade name, it being from one who make sieves. However, by the 12th or 13th century the name had lost much of its relationship to a trade and the name became distinguished in its own right.

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: Recte ferio
Motto Translation: I strike straight
