Veltri Early Origins



The surname Veltri was first found in Limburg, Holland, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in Limburg, the smallest, southernmost province of the Netherlands. The capital of the province is Mastricht, noted for its contribution to the modern treaty for the E.E. C. Other notable towns are Crefeld and Breda and Nijmwegan. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.

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: Per virtutes in honores
Motto Translation: Through the powers of the office
