Early Origins of the Suckley family


The surname Suckley was first found in Norfolk at Woodton, a parish, in the union of Loddon and Clavering, hundred of Loddon. This village was home to the family from ancient times. "The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at 6. 13. 4., and in the gift of the Rev. A. Suckling: the tithes have been commuted for 615, and the glebe comprises 27 acres, with a house. The church [(Woodton All Saints)] is chiefly in the decorated English style, with a circular tower of earlier date, surmounted by an octagonal turret, and has some handsome monuments to the Suckling family." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The church is one of 124 existing round-tower churches in Norfolk. John Sokeling was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Berkshire in 1195. Richards Sukeling was listed in Oxfordshire in 1253 and Mabilia Sucling was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Suffolk in 1253. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Suckley Motto

Expand

The Suckley 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: Mora trahit periculum
Motto Translation: Delay brings danger.
