Early Origins of the Youngson family
Scotland and England. The name was first borne in this region by a Strathclyde-Briton family, as revealed in records dating back to the 13th century.
"Its centre in the north is in Northumberland and Durham. Over a large part of Scotland, but especially south of the Forth and the Clyde, Young is numerously to be found." CITATION[CLOSE]
One of the earliest records of the family was in the Latin form of the name (typical of the time): "Malmor dictus Juvenis and Ade dictus Juvenis were assizers at Dumbarton in 1271." CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Youngson family to the New World and Oceana
In such difficult times, the difficulties of raising the money to cross the Atlantic to North America did not seem so large compared to the problems of keeping a family together in Scotland. It was a journey well worth the cost, since it was rewarded with land and freedom the Scots could not find at home. The American War of Independence solidified that freedom, and many of those settlers went on to play important parts in the forging of a great nation. Among them:
Youngson Settlers in United States in the 17th Century
Youngson Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

The Youngson 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: Roberi prudentia praestat
Motto Translation: Prudence excels strength.
