The surname Tichbourne was first found in Hampshire at Tichborne (Tichbourne) a village and civil parish 4 miles (6.4 km) east of Winchester. The place name dates back to Saxon times when it was first listed as Ticceburna c. 909.  Literally the place name means "stream frequented by young goats," from the Old English words "ticce" + "burna."  "Tichbourne in Hampshire has for a period of unknown antiquity, probably before the Conquest, been in the possession of a family who derived their name from it. "  "The church [of Aldershott, Southampton] contains a curious monument to the Titchbourne family, whose ancient seat has been converted into a farmhouse." 
Spelling variations of this family name include: Tichborne, Tichbourne, Titchborne and others.

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: Pugna pro patria
Motto Translation: Fight for your country.
