Woodyet Early Origins



The surname Woodyet was first found in Kent where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. This distinguished Anglo Saxon Kentish family have been seated in the county of Kent since about the year 1200 where, strangely, one of the first spellings of the name was Wdegat or Wdegate, and may have had little or nothing to do with either wood, or the gate to a wood.

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: Esse quam videri
Motto Translation: To be, rather than to seem.
