Waterhouse is a name that was brought to England by the ancestors of the Waterhouse family when they migrated to the region after the Norman Conquest in 1066. The Waterhouse family lived in Lincolnshire, at Waterhouse. This place-name indicates that the original bearer lived in a house located near a body of water.

Waterhouse Early Origins



The surname Waterhouse 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]

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Waterhouse were among those contributors:

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.
