Below is the start of an ever growing list of Family Crests and Shields, along with their Motto's.
If you know of one that matches any of the surnames on this site and would like to contribute, I'll make sure you get recognized for it when I add it to this page.
Jolley Coat of Arms: TANT QUE JE PUIS, translated is, 1) "As Much as I
Can", 2) "What I Can", 3) "I Will Do What I Can". It
probably represents a Pledge of Allegiance of Service.
A very large variety of Shields and History exists with this surname.
MOTTO: Nil amplius oro. ie. I pray for nothing more.
Motto: "A Posse Ad Esse" - From Being Possible to Being Accomplished.
