Wichcotte Early Origins



The surname Wichcotte was first found in Shropshire where the family is descended from William de Whichcote of Whichcote in 1255. During the reign of Edward IV, the family inherited Harpswell, Lincolnshire by marriage with the heiress of Tyrwhitt and this became the family seat for many years. [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: Juste et droit
Motto Translation: Just and right.
