Veilleux Early Origins



The surname Veilleux was first found in Languedoc where this distinguished family held a family seat at Viesamp-Pern, and were members of the ruling aristocracy of that region. This main stem branched to Vivarais, Perigord, Quercy, Rouergue, and Auvergne, and would emerge as the Marquis de la Valette Chabrioul.

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: Plus quam valor valetta valet
Motto Translation: Non aes, sed fides.
