"The Scottish family of this name are stated to be a younger branch of the noble house of Seton. The ancestor is said to have fled into France temp. James IV., in consequence of having slain a gentleman in a sudden quarrel at a hunting match, and there to have adopted, for concealment, the name of Tytler. His two sons, bearing the same name, returned to Scotland with Queen Mary. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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: Occultus non extinctus
Motto Translation: Hidden, not extinguished.
