Welde Early Origins



The surname Welde was first found in Cheshire in the lands and manor of Eaton in that county. They were descended from Edric, surnamed Stratton or Sylvaticus, created Duke of Mercia by Ethelred, King of England in 1003, but put to death 14 years later by King Canute. Edric Wild or Weld, his descendant in 1066, was a person of great power in the north west of England. He was succeeded by another Edric, William, John, William and Edward, living 1290. William Weld, Sheriff of London in 1352 married Anne Wettenhall and was seated at Eaton in Cheshire. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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: Nil sine numine
Motto Translation: Nothing without the Deity.
