Early Origins of the Tweedie family


The surname Tweedie was first found in Lanarkshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Lannraig) a former county in the central Strathclyde region of Scotland, now divided into the Council Areas of North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, and the City of Glasgow, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, on the lands of Tweedie in the parish of Stonehouse in Lanarkshire. Even from ancient times the Tweedies had a reputation of being a savage race and were frequently at odds with the Law.

The Tweedie 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: Thol And Think
Motto Translation: Wait and think
