The surname Sturton was first found in Wiltshire at Stourton. Leland write in his Itinerary "The name of Stourtons be very aunciente yn those parties. The Ryver of Stoure risith ther of six fountains or springes, whereof three be on the northe side of the Parke harde withyn the pale: the other three be north also, but without the parke; the Lord Stourton gyveth these six Fountaynes yn his arms." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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: Loyal je serai durant ma vie
Motto Translation: I will be loyal as long as I live.
