Wibourg Early Origins



The surname Wibourg was first found in Westmorland, where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Clifton Hall. However, there is one reference of a Wybert, who was Prior of Christ Church Cathedral Priory in Canterbury, attached to Canterbury Cathedral from 1153-1167. Their family records can prove an unbroken line resident at Clifton Hall since 1367. Before the acquisition of Clifton Hall through the marriage of William de Wybergh to Eleanor, daughter and heiress of Gilbert Engayne, the family of Wybergh held a family seat at St. Bees, a parish in which Whitehaven is situated.

St. Bees or St. Bees Head on which there is a lighthouse, is said to have been founded by St. Bega, an Irish saint who founded a monastery there about 650 A.D.

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: Hominem te esse memento
Motto Translation: Remember that thou art a man.
