Tillsly Early Origins



The surname Tillsly was first found in Lancashire at Tildesley or Tydelsley, a township and parochial district, in the union of Leigh, hundred of West Derby. "Tyldesley, though unnoticed in Domesday Book, certainly formed part of the Norman barony of Warrington, being claimed to be within its jurisdiction in all pleas to quo warrantos by the lords of that honour or barony that have occurred. Under these barons, the proprietors who adopted the local name settled, holding by service of the tenth part of a knight's fee. The suits to the courts of the barony and hundred have long been disused; and the mesne manor, also, is nearly extinct. Of the family of Tyldesley was the celebrated royalist Sir Thomas Tyldesley." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Another branch of the family was found at Blackpool in Lancashire at one time. "Fox Hall [in Blackpool], once a sequestered residence of the gallant family of Tildesley, is now a farmhouse." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

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: Regis et patria tantum valet amor
Motto Translation: (with)Great love for King and country
