Warnock History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Warnock family


The surname Warnock was first found in Ayrshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Inbhir Àir), formerly a county in the southwestern Strathclyde region of Scotland, that today makes up the Council Areas of South, East, and North Ayrshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say before the Norman invasion of 1066.

They were originally a sept of the Grahams (hence the same escallops and colours as the Graham Coat of Arms) and known as the Mac-Gille-Warnocks, and gave their name to the parish of Gaitgillmakkilwernock in Kirkcudbrightshire. The Clan was more properly known as the MacIlvernocks.

Some of the first records of the family include: Robert Warnot (probably the same name) who had a remission for his share in holding Dumbarton Castle against the king in 1489 and Andree Warnoche in Lanark who had a remission in 1505. Later, James Warnok was a witness in Ayrshire in 1562. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Warnock 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: Ne oublie
Motto Translation: Don't forget.
