Yelverton History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Early Origins of the Yelverton family
The surname Yelverton was first found in Norfolk at Yelverton, a parish, in the union of Loddon and Clavering, hundred of Henstead. . As if to confirm these findings, another source notes the family originates from "a parish in Norfolk, where the family appear to have dwelt in early times. The extinct Earls of Sussex sprang from Andrew de Yelverton of that county, who flourished temp. Edward II." 
Hence, conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Yelverton, held by Godric from the King, who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. 
Yelverton is also a village on the south-western edge of Dartmoor, Devon. This village dates back to 1291 when it was first listed as Elleford and originally meant "elder-tree ford," from the Old English "ellen" + "ford."

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: Foy en tout
Motto Translation: Faith in everything.
