Wingate dates back to c. 1070-1080 when it was first listed as Windegatum and literally meant "wind-swept gap(s) or pass(es)" from the Old English words "wind-geat." The township of Windgates is in Northumberland and it dates back to 1208 when it was first listed as Wyndegates. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Wingett Motto

Expand

The Wingett 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: Suum cuique
Motto Translation: To every man his own.
