Thurrott Early Origins



The surname Thurrott was first found in Lincolnshire, where they claim descent from Theroldus de Buckenhuld, Sheriff of Lincolnshire in 1052 whose descendant Sir Richards Thorold of Selby was living during the reign of Edward III. He married Joan, daughter and heiress of Robert de Haugh, of Marston. And it is from this marriage a son was born, William Thorold, Lord of Marston. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Looking back further in Normandy, the family is a branch of the DeVers, from Ver near Bayeux where Alberic de Ver witnessed a Breton charter in 1058. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Thurrotts to arrive on North American shores: Jacob and Sarah Therould settled in New York in 1686 with two children.

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: Cervus non servus
Motto Translation: A stag not enslaved.
