Taillefer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Taillefer family

The surname Taillefer was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy. William III Taillefer (also spelled Tallefer or Tallifer; c.970-1037) was the Count of Toulouse, Albi, and Quercy (c.972-1037.) Perhaps the most famous member of the family was the jester of Duke William of Normandy who amused the troops at Hastings before the battle by brandishing swords in view of the English troops. He "accidentally" slew first one, then a standard bearer, and a third time was killed himself. Meanwhile William Fulco and Robert Tailefer were recorded in Normandy in 1180, and carried on their respective lineage.

The Taillefer 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: Non quot, sed uri
Motto Translation: Not many, but to burn
