The Great Migration



The Scots who crossed the Atlantic were often on the run from poverty as well as persecution. They brought little with them, and often had nothing of their home country to hand down to their children. In the 20th century, Clan societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations have helped the ancestors of Boernician Scots to recover their lost national legacy. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Sincock were among those contributors:

Sincock Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • John Sincock, who arrived in Virginia in 1702

Sincock Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century

  • Richard Sincock arrived in Adelaide, Australia aboard the ship "Baboo" in 1848
  • James Sincock arrived in Adelaide, Australia aboard the ship "Constance" in 1848

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: Fortuna et labore
Motto Translation: By fortune and labor.
