An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The name Wadterhose was brought to England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Wadterhose family lived in Lincolnshire, at Waterhouse. This place-name indicates that the original bearer lived in a house located near a body of water.

Wadterhose Early Origins



The surname Wadterhose was first found in Lincolnshire where Guy de Craon held the lands of Kirton from Count Alan at the time of the Norman Conquest in 1066. His successor was known as Ab Aquae Domo or Sir Gilbert Waterhouse. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Wadterhose Spelling Variations

Wadterhose Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Watehouse, Waterhouse and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlanti c. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Wadterhose or a variant listed above: Joe Waterhouse who settled in Virginia in 1622; Samuel Waterhouse settled in Virginia in 1642; William Waterhouse settled in Virginia in 1654; John Waterhouse settled in Philadelphia in 1820.

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: Veritas vincit omnia
Motto Translation: Truth Conquers All.
